Fund-raising with no effort!

Do you shop on-line? If you do, the chances are the web sites you shop with are part of a fundraising scheme called “Give as You Live”. Hundreds of stores, including Argos, Amazon, Sainsburys, Tesco, M&S, Boots, EBay, Debenhams, Waitrose and many more, are in the scheme. In return for people shopping on line, these stores will make a small donation to a nominated charity; and small donations mount up, if enough people are involved.

We have registered our Shanti Nagar St Andrew’s Trust with the scheme. This means that, whenever someone who has nominated our charity as the one to receive donations in respect of their purchases, shops with one of these major stores, we will receive a donation. You don’t pay any more for the items you buy, so belonging to the scheme is totally free and yet the charity benefits!

To find out more about the scheme, visit .

In order to earn money back for Shanti Nagar, or some other charity which you support, you simply need to register with the scheme, which involves giving your name, email address and a password – no more than that. You will then be asked to nominate a charity you wish to support. Having done that, whenever you are about to buy something on line, you simply log in to  to access your store’s web site. The store will give commission to Give as You Live, who in return will put money directly into the charity’s bank account. It is as easy as that!

As I said above, the more people who participate in the scheme, the more their charity will benefit. We are not encouraging people to begin shopping online, but asking those who already do so, to shop via the Give as You Live website and thus earn cash-back for charity, at no cost to themselves.
I have already signed up – why not join me?

Pancakes and Poems at Thornton

Pancakes and Poems, what a great evening we had on 13th February (Shrove Tuesday), in aid of 2nd Mile Project.

People were invited to come along for tea/supper and enjoy a variety of pancakes both savoury and sweet.

The selection was most tempting with fillings such as chilli. chicken and avocado, mushroom or cheese and onion. The sweet fillings were too many to mention, but my favourite was fresh fruits with ice cream – yum, yum.

Throughout the evening, many people had brought poems to read to everyone. The genre of this was amazing with funny, romantic, knowledgeable and even a little bit naughty.

It was good to be together with laughter and smiles all round. A special thank you to everyone who came and all who helped.

Methodist Women in Britain

Ladies of the Bradford North Circuit, welcome to an introduction to MWiB!

Methodist Women in Britain is a movement within the Methodist Church, which seeks to resource individual women and women's groups in a variety of ways. It came into being in July 2011, formed through the coming together of Women's Network and other women's meetings within Methodism.

MWiB is more than a meeting. Many women may feel that it is not for them, because they do not already attend a women's meeting. The movement is there for ALL women in Methodism. There are opportunities for meetings within circuits, and at District and Connexional levels, which are all held on a regular basis.

MWiB seeks to offer a broader menu for women today. There are many opportunities to meet locally, nationally and internationally. Resources are available for individuals to use at home, at work or within their families.

MWiB is very active nationally; details of events can be found in the Methodist Recorder …
