Charities of the Month – July

Disadvantaged groups

The Cathedral is committed to supporting community groups which serve people facing challenging circumstances.

‘The Week’s Good Cause’ Donation Point provides a dedicated space for Somerset organisations, both to raise awareness of the group’s aims, and to raise funds for that work.

JULY – British Red Cross and Somerset Cruse

The British Red Cross helps people in crisis, whoever and wherever they are. We are part of a global voluntary network, responding to conflicts, natural disasters and individual emergencies. We have several contracts based here in Somerset which provide mobility aids and support people at home after time spent in hospital.

We have a national helpline and local services, and a website and freephone helpline specifically for children and young people. Our services are provided by trained volunteers and are confidential and free.
