125 Years of Welcare It
was wonderful to see so many supporters at our uplifting 125th Anniversary
Service of Thanksgiving at Southwark Cathedral on 15th June.
It was especially pleasing that so many young people participated, and very special thanks must go to Mirabelle who enthralled everyone with her interpretative rap dance of the personal journey of faith which allows us to thrive.
CapeAbility The service was built around the themes of our
CapeAbility campaign, targeted at schools and junior churches to
increase awareness and support for our work.
CapeAbility uses the metaphor of superheroes (hence the Cape in CapeAbility) to encourage children to thrive, care and inspire others. If you know a school or junior church that could take part in 2020, please encourage them to register their interest here.
Welcare 1894-2019 Our anniversary also gave us a chance to capture a collection of stories illustrating how our work has
evolved to meet society's changing needs.
We are indebted to Jo Josh for volunteering her time curating, interviewing and drafting the narrative for our new booklet Welcare 1894-2019, and also to Rachel Thornhill who took some beautiful new photographs to use in this publication and on our website.
We still have 8 places left to fill in the London 10K which takes place on Sunday 21st
July. Please share this with any family members, friends or work colleagues who may like
to challenge themselves and be part of #TeamWelcare.
If you cannot take part, but would like to support #TeamWelcare on the day of the 10k, you can make a donation at our Justgiving page.
