INTERNATIONAL: Y Care International
As the international relief and development agency of the YMCA in the UK and Ireland Y Care International work in partnership with YMCAs that are already playing key roles in their communities.
LOCAL: Broad Plain Youth Initiative
Broad Plain Boys Club is an inner city multi-racial youth project, using sport as a platform to engage all young people in purposefull activities. The project aims to further and enhance the individual growth and development of young males aged between 7 – 25 years.
Redland Park also regularly supports Traidcraft which sells goods from Third World countries at fair prices that guarantees a better deal for the people who produce them and their families. They cut out the middle men and deal directly with producers. The Traidcraft stall is open after Sunday morning service at Redland Park.
Redland Park regularly runs fund raising events for the charities they support. These include concerts, fayres, cake sales, quizzes and sponsored activities.
We also organise special fund raising collections for world disaster emergencies such as the tsunami and the Pakistan earthquake appeals. Gift Aid envelopes are available in the church pews or from the treasurer.
