Where will your money go?

All donations made to us through the Big Give in May will help to fund our vital work with children and the local community on the Isle of Dogs.

In 2006, London City Mission helped to transform a disused building at the centre of the local St John’s Park so that it could be used by the whole community. Prior to this, the park was frequented by gangs and drug users. For ten years we have run activities for the community, helping to reduce isolation and crime and share the love of God with thousands of people. Through this project we will also be providing nutritional food to children - some children from poorer families are known to go without meals during school holidays.

Your gift will help to support activities such as:

Crafts for children: over the summer, children can take part in organised crafts activities.

Football coaching: over fifty children participated in the football programme last year.

Youth Training Workshops: aimed at 10-18-year-olds, these workshops develop employment skills, and include training in first aid, food hygiene, small business development, and health and safety.

Babies in the Park: organised activities in the park for babies and toddlers to bring parents together.

Park Cafe: this is a pop-up cafe, open Monday to Friday for three months in the summer. Having a presence in the park cafe helps to reduce crime rates, creating a safe place for residents to interact and for our staff to build friendships with people.

These activities are helping us to bring God’s love and hope to an area where over 40% of households live in poverty and many people live in isolation.
