Mercy Ships deploys hospital ships to some of the poorest countries in the world, delivering vital, free healthcare to people in desperate need. Two out of three people on the planet do not have access to surgery when they need it. Conditions requiring surgical treatment kill more people in low-income countries than HIV/Aids, TB and malaria combined.
At the Open Spaces Society, Britain’s oldest national conservation body, we have campaigned to protect commons, greens and paths for more than 150 years. All these are under threat in various ways including from neglect, illegal obstructions and the pressure of new developments. Any gift, large or small, makes a vital difference and enables us to defend the open spaces and paths which are some of our nation’s finest assets.

The Anglican Society for the Welfare of Animals was formed in 1970 by a group of clergy and lay Christians who felt very strongly that the Church did not speak out on the subject of animal cruelty and suffering. Our mission is therefore to ‘put animals on the agenda of the Christian church’.
You can change the world for animals! For 38 years, Animal Aid has been preventing animal suffering: Animal Aid filmed secretly in nine slaughterhouses. Eight were breaking animal welfare laws. As a result, two men were jailed for animal cruelty and all the major supermarkets now insist that their meat suppliers fit CCTV cameras.
