Charity of the Month:

Every month we support a different Charity. Our charity for October is "Woodbrooke".



Woodbrooke is many things to many people. The learning programmes inform and motivate Quakers, those of other faiths or none. The inspiring venue in Birmingham offers space for meetings and events.

Each year Woodbrooke relies on generous donations and legacies which go towards developing and delivering the learning programme. This money helps to subsidiser the learning programme and support future developments.

Woodbrooke is an ispiring place not only for Quakers. Have a look:
