Each week after Meeting for Worship on Sunday there is a collection. The Appeals and Collections Committee is responsible for the choice of groups to be supported in this way. Most are charities, though some are campaigning groups which may not have charitable status.
A wide range of local, national and international organisations, both Quaker and non-Quaker are supported in this way.
A list of collections for the current year is displayed in the meeting house. A list for last year forms part of the annual report.
Giving in this way is in addition to Friends' main financial support of the meeting and Quaker work, which is organised through an annual Subscription Schedule, distributed on behalf of the Finance Committee by our Subscriptions Treasurer.
Gift Aid envelopes are provided in the meeting room to enable tax-efficient giving.
