Samaritans Purse Shoe Box Appeal

A charity we have supported with help from RASCALS for a number of years now.
The story of the Good Samaritan (Luke 10:30-37) gives a clear picture of God’s desire for us to help those in desperate need wherever we find them. After describing how the Samaritan rescued a hurting man whom others had passed by, Jesus told His hearers, “Go and do likewise.” For over 40 years, Samaritan’s Purse has done our utmost to follow Christ’s command by going to the aid of the world’s poor, sick, and suffering.

Ben's Centre

Founded in 1996, what was then known as Ben’s Place, was set up by ‘Ben’ PC Ian Sherman. Ben (as he was dubbed by drinkers on his patch) was the town hall bobby, which at the time was a regular haunt for city street drinkers. After witnessing the cycle of arrests of street drinkers for them only to return to the streets, Ben recognised the need for a different approach.
