Volunteers’ Week 2020 Thank You

From 1st-7th June is Volunteers Week across the UK and here in Cornwall, we are keen to say a huge “THANK YOU” to all the thousands of volunteers who have been supporting their communities at this difficult time. And we have enlisted the help of some friends and colleagues who also have something to say…

We would normally be launching ‘Cornwall celebrates Volunteering’ this week too but of course this year, everything has changed. However, we are in talks to do something later in the year to recognise the fantastic way people across our communities came together to help one another so watch this space…!

In the meantime, if you want to say your own personal “thank you” to a volunteer, head on over to our Facebook page and join the conversations.

And Happy Volunteers Week to one and all!

Counting the Cost of Coronavirus : 4 Jun, ONLINE

With the right strategy, churches can help improve the outcome for those experiencing financial hardship right now.

The financial challenges facing our communities are far more complex and overwhelming than we have ever experienced, but we believe the Church is well placed to respond. The number of people claiming unemployment benefit in the UK jumped by more than 856,000 in April, the first full month of the coronavirus lockdown.

Helplines have been inundated with queries from people who are confused about their options, including a growing number who find themselves unable to access government support schemes.

Demand for support is set to increase exponentially this summer as payment holidays and state-backed furlough schemes come to an end and redundancies increase.

Join our Cinnamon Connect Webinar where we’ll explore what churches can do to help those experiencing financial hardship now and in the months ahead.

On Thursday 4 June at 11 am Nick Amis, from Cinnamon Network will be talking to Jenny Herrera, Executive Director of Acts 435; Heather Keates, CEO of Community Money Advice; and Paula Stringer, CEO of CAP UK.

Nick, Jenny, Heather and Paula will be discussing:

What financial challenges are people currently facing

  • How are financial needs likely to change over the next few months
  • What can churches do to support individuals and families
  • What organisations and tools are available to help churches respond
