Throughout their history, Quakers have been deeply concerned with questions of peace, social justice and responsibility . The interests of Abingdon Quakers are reflected in the Meeting's support for charities.
Monthly Special Collection
Each month the Meeting makes a special collection for a charity in which a member has a particular interest.
During the 2017 Chrisltmas period we supported Glad's House:
Thousands of young people live on the streets of Mombasa, Kenya. For these children life has always been a struggle for survival, often leading to the misuse of alcohol, drugs and a life of crime. Glad's House helps as many ‘street children & youths’ as possible so that they can lead a ‘normal life’ and realise their potential.
