Charities


 

Money collected at Sunday services and other special services is donated to charity.  Normally two charities are chosen each term, one national or international, and the other local to Cambridge.  The charities are chosen by students who are part of the Chapel community.

This term's charities:

Sing Inside

Freedom from Torture

Sing Inside
Freedom from Torture

Sing Inside is a Cambridge-based, student-led organisation, promoting arts-based rehabilitation initiatives by bringing choral workshops into UK prisons. It has no paid staff and is dependent on volunteers and donations. Its founders believe that music can break down common stereotypes, social barriers, and encourage creativity, confidence and a greater sense of self-worth.

Freedom from Torture is a British NGO that provides specialist counselling, group therapy and continuing support for survivors of torture. They provide expert medical assessments to support survivors' asylum claims and conduct research to monitor the incidence of torture around the world, defend survivors' rights and educate lawmakers.

The proceeds of our Advent Carol Service are always given to Trinity in Camberwell and those from Remembrance Sunday to the Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal. If you would like to nominate a charity as a recipient of Chapel offerings, please speak to one of the Chaplains.
