St. Mary’s Charitable Giving

A very big thank you to everyone who supported our fundraising during Lent for our diocesan Ukraine Appeal.  The total amount raised was an impressive £640.

During 2022 we are raising funds for Looking For Change – a local charity that aims to support homeless people in Newmarket.  After a successful launch of the Looking for Change campaign in Bury St Edmunds, Bury Drop In were asked to team up with the Newmarket Inter-faith Forum and bring the alternative giving campaign to Newmarket. The campaign asks people not to give money direct – but to text donations to a dedicated number. It means the money will not only help rough sleepers, but also people who are homeless but not living on the streets and those who are vulnerable.  People can support the campaign through a text by typing NKT followed by the amount (so for £5 type NKT5) and send to 70085.
