IN Day of Encouragement #GivingTuesdayNow

Walter the duck is back (but working from home)! He has been our trusty mascot for our #GivingTuesday fundraising over the last few years, where he has helped us to get creative and raise huge amounts of money for our international projects (do you remember the fish tank, the chilli plants, the waddle for water?). Though #GivingTuesday is in December each year, #GivingTuesdayNow has been introduced for Tuesday 5th May…

International Needs are joining #GivingTuesdayNow – a day created as an emergency response to the immense global needs caused by COVID-19. Immense needs that our partners around the world are facing.

We are using this day to celebrate what we have been able to do together in 2019 and to encourage one another in this difficult time. We also ask you to consider what you can give to support the emergency needs of our partners. You can make a donation through our website here, or feel free to get in touch to find out more (01883 331332 or

In this challenging time, we have taken inspiration from Proverbs: ‘Anxiety in a man’s heart weighs him down, but a good word makes him glad.’ Proverbs 12:25

Do make sure to follow our social media channels to join our celebrations of impact in 2019: Facebook, Instagram & Twitter.
