As the clocks spring forward, those of us connected with the Timos Trust - as with all Christian groups and charities - look forward to Easter as the most important time in our yearly cycle of seasons. As we emerge from Lent into Easter, we are excited to celebrate the Resurrection and the hope that this momentous event symbolises.
We hope that you may take the good news of this Eastertide as an encouragement to think about going on a service for the good of others. What better way to embody the spiritual gifts of kindness, charity and love, than embarking on a practical adventure which will contribute to the improvement of a world which can seem, at times, unbearably dark? We would love to help you fulfil that mission.
Watch this space...
2019 will witness the 20th anniversary of the Trust's formation. Watch this space to see news of celebratory events! Of course, the event which inspired the Trust will never be anything but a tragedy; two decades of fundraising and charity work, however, shows that even out of the darkness, good and kind things can grow.
So that we can publish the exciting news stories that we get sent from bursary holders whom we support financially, we have included a testimonial blog. This has got their reports and photos which document the work they have achieved all over the world. Have a read and search the archive to give you an idea of the projects which we feel able to support.
tell everyone you know about us
One of the best things about the Timios Trust is seeing the variety of projects undertaken by our amazing bursary holders. The list of places visited by people supported by Timios continues to grow but we want to help even more volunteers. So if you know of someone in your church or community who is planning a trip which we may be able to support, do encourage them to apply.
And why not consider giving a donation in order to allow us to continue supporting those who want to improve the lives of others? We rely on small and regular gifts. Unlike very large charities which by nature have high costs, we put all of the money we're given towards bursaries so you know any donation is directly funding travel bursaries. If you want to discuss a donation please free to send us an email - contact us here.
