Birmingham City Mission in need

June 17, 2011 No Comments

Food stocks in the Resource Centre Basics Bank at BCM have recently become very low and we’ll be collecting tins and packets of food as an on-going project to help with this valuable work. A box will be provided in church for your contributions and will be delivered to Birmingham on a regular basis. For further information on specific items needed visit the BCM website and click on the Resource Centre link.

About The Basics Bank Project (From the BCM website):

The Basics Bank Project was set up to help people in the debt trap. People with severe financial problems are referred by Social Services. Many of our clients are young single mums with anything up to six children and without any family support network. They are at the mercy of loan-sharks, credit companies, catalogues, etc. We hope that there is some light at the end of the tunnel for them as our counsellors build relationships, lend a listening ear, make practical suggestions and offer spiritual support too.
