Charities

Supporting a charity is important to our churches’ engagement with the community, locally, nationally and internationally.

For 2020, Smarden PCC have chosen The Friends of Smarden Primary School (FOSP) as their nominated charity. The Smarden school PTA group has been running for several years now raising much needed funds for the school and its children. Various events such as coffee mornings, Easter Egg hunts and the annual summer fair are great ways for them to raise funds. Due to the Covid 19 crisis this year, many of these events cannot be held so helping towards the FOSP fundraising has become even more important.

Biddenden Church support The Toilet Twinning Organisation (toiletwinning.org) in 2020 which funds projects in poor communities that enable families to build a basic toilet, to have access to clean water and learn about hygiene which saves many lives. During the Lent appeal, over one thousand pounds was raised for this charity.
