CHARITIES CHOSEN FOR 2019-
The local Charity is Aberdeen Counselling and Information Service. Developed from Mental Health Aberdeen, this organisation gives support and advice to people coping with a wide variety of mental health issues. In particular, they are focussing on the issues of young people struggling with depressive and suicidal tendencies throughout the North East.
The overseas Charity is the Leprosy Mission Trust. Often thought of as a disease of the Biblical era, leprosy continues to be a problem in many parts of Africa and the Indian Sub Continent. Leprosy Mission provides medical and practical support to sufferers and their families.
The first opportunity to support these charities will come at the Christmas Eve Carol Service, when the collection will be split between the two charities. Other fundraising opportunities will follow. Spokespersons for both charities will be invited to give a brief summary of their work after morning worship one Sunday, early in 2019.
