St Nicolas' Church Charitable Giving
In 2022 St Nicolas' supported:
The Abingdon Foodbank
Providing three days' nutritionally balanced emergency food and support to local people who are referred to them in crisis. Part of a nationwide network of foodbanks, supported by The Trussell Trust, working to combat poverty and hunger across the UK.
We collect donated goods weekly, and all the in kind donations from our Harvest Service were given to the Abingdon Foodbank.
The Children's Society
Providing specialist support that empowers young people to make positive changes and rediscover their hope. Working alongside young people, their families and community, to create a society built for all children.
Working to expose poverty throughout the world; to help in practical ways to end it and to highlight, challenge and change the structures and systems that favour the rich and powerful over the poor and marginalised.
Our support in 2022 was particularly directed at the East Africa Hunger Crisis Appeal.

Save the Children
Save the Children exists to help every child reach their full potential. In the UK and around the world, we make sure children stay safe, healthy and keep learning, so they can become who they want to be. We lead the way on tackling problems like pneumonia, hunger and protecting children in war, while making sure each child’s unique needs are cared for. We find new ways to reach children who need us most, no matter where they’re growing up.
