We are a charity local to Southport and survive purely on voluntary funding (Charity No. 1075068). We are immensely grateful to the handful of generous individuals and church congregations who regularly give to this work. Without them we would never have got to this point.
It’s impossible to measure the full extent of the impact our work is having on local children and young people, but from what we do see, we know for certain that lives and futures are being shaped and changed for the better.
Our annual expenditure varies around £55k, on a very limited budget. However, our committed income falls around £35k. Meaning we have a lot of work to do to break even, let alone expand our work to address the local needs we see daily with our proven track record.
A large part of our the supporters section of our website is dedicated to taking you through the various projects we run and what they cost. A few examples you might find:
£11 per month
could fund a child having the opportunity to be part of a Sweaty Church worshipping community.
could fund a regular primary school assembly.
could fund a full-team primary school assembly.
could fund a Safe Space lunchtime session for 140+ secondary school students to check-in with us on their wellbeing.
£500 per year
(£42/month) donation could fund one whole school having the annual opportunity to experience our touring Christmas production.
