London - Charity work

London

Action for Homeless
We help this charity to offer food to homeless people, either working in the kitchen, or serving food. The convent feeds more than 100 people every day. People normally go any other Sunday.

Choir
"Truly there is no service to the community comparable to singing.....When you sing at the retreat you express us, you are us and your voice rises and touches us like a gift. For this reason song is freely given, singing is charity. Song is pure charity.... This is why the choir, why singing, is the most useful and charitable service given to the community." (Fr Luigi Giussani)

The choir aims to serve the community in expressing and growing in our awareness of our belonging to Christ through the charism of CL by singing at the various gestures such as assemblies, retreats, Way of the Cross, Carol Service etc. We meet fortnightly on Saturday 4-6 pm. If you are interested in joining the Choir, please contact the Choir Secretary (secretary.choir@gmail.com).

Food Collection
This charity work follows the experience of the Italian “Banco di Solidarietà“. Our aim is to share the needs of poor people while giving/serving them food and having a relationship with them. We are collecting non‒perishable food (any type) and distribute it to poor people through existing missions and organizations. At the moment we are involved with:
o Acton Homeless Concern
o Harrow Food Bank
Please contact the Secretary Team for more information: secretary.cl@gmail.com


Missionaries of Charity (Ladbroke Grove and Elephant and Castle)

We help the Missionaries of Charity to share the need of homeless people by attending Mass and then serving lunch. People normally commit themselves to go fortnightly.

WorkInProgress (London)
Starting from the current economic situation and from several requests from friends, some of us have decided to offer an opportunity to meet the totality of the other’s need starting from the concrete need to find a job or improve a CV.
Please contact the WorkInProgress for more information: Uk.workinprogress@gmail.com

Samara's aid appeal www.samarasaidappeal.org
Some of us were struck by the story of Samara Levy, a young mum from Brighton who in few months managed to send many lorries loaded with Winter clothes and supplies to Iraqi refugees. Since then Samara has started a charity, Samara's Aid Appeal, sent many more supplies and managed to reach more countries in need. We can help Samara's work by donating money through her website, clothes and other supplies, or organising a collection locally.
If you are interested, please contact the Secretary Team: secretary.cl@gmail.com

Housing Help Point
This helps friends who move to the UK, to study or work, to search for accommodation by sharing advice or signalling possible solutions that the help point is aware of.
