St Cedd’s Church, Barkingside, isn’t the biggest church in the world, but it has a big-hearted congregation! So when they heard about ‘Grace’s Place’, our project for children in Ghana, they put their hands in their pockets and gave generously.

As a result, their Vicar, Rev Stella Olukanmi, was able to send us a magnificent cheque for £200, taking our total beyond £3,000 already. Thank you, St Cedd’s!

Generous churchwardens give to ‘Grace’s Place’

The Churchwardens and clergy who attended the recent ‘Visitation’ service in Wanstead responded immediately when told about Grace’s Place. I’ve just received a cheque from Wanstead Parish, who organised the evening, and I’m bowled over that it was nearly £1,000.
There’s a long way to go yet, but we’re about to send information about Grace’s Place to lots of generous people across East London, and we know that they will respond in lots of imaginative ways.

We want to build a permanent place where children can come to read and learn in peace and safety. We’re calling it Grace’s Place: Can we make it happen? Yes, together we can!
