Charity for 2019/20

Each year Churchill Methodists choose a charity to support. The money raised at fund raising events is split equally between our chosen charity and the church.

The church year starts in September and for the church year 2018/2019 we have decided to support the BARB.

BARB (formed as the Burnham Area Rescue Boat in 1992) is a registered charity that operates two life-saving rescue hovercrafts and an inshore rescue boat in the Bridgwater Bay area.

BARB is a registered charity that relies solely on donations to run its service. Its annual running costs are over £30,000. Unlike other rescue groups, no-one at BARB is paid – they are all volunteers – so every penny raised is put towards rescues, training and maintaining their equipment.
