We’ve got a new option for those who want to support former refugees, but can’t be involved with collecting, delivering and setting up household items each intake. Our parishes and schools now have the option to run fundraisers (of the most imaginative kind possible!) and donate the proceeds into the diocesan refugee resettlement account.
This money is used each intake to purchase household items to top up the house lots that have been collected, whereby some items may still be required. Having a backstop of funds available means we can continue to provide a seamless service to those most in need.
If you want to run a fundraiser in your parish or school, please share your ideas with us – so we can use them to inspire others! Email your plans to firstname.lastname@example.org. When you’re ready to donate your money, deposit it via internet banking as follows:
- Account name: Anglican Diocese of Wellington
- Account Number: 01-0535-0089638-28
- Reference: 999.568
- Particulars: REF
