As another year ends, we often think about what we've achieved during the course of the last twelve months. At the Timios Trust we have continued to contribute to the travelling costs of a number of Christian people who have gone out into the world to do practical work for the good of others. None of this work would be possible without the financial contributions of our friends and supporters, and we would like to thank you all for your prayers and contributions over the past twelve months.
a particular thank you
The end of 2018 sees the stepping down of Richard Budden as the Secretary of the Trust, and as a Trustee. Richard was a founding trustee and has continually served as Secretary, a role he has fulfilled with efficiency and commitment. Charities like the Timios Trust only exist and grow because of volunteers who give up time and skills to their good governance. We offer our most sincere thanks to Richard for all of the hard work he's put in to the Trust.
New Year Resolution
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.
