This acronym stands for "Relief of Oppressed People Everywhere" and is a locally based charity in Amersham operating worldwide. It was one of our chosen charities some years ago and we still regularly receive their "News from ROPE" newsletters. I tried to make this our chosen charity at our recent Church Forum, but it was decided to support YDA instead.
Their latest Newsletter (Issue 4, October 2019) is in the church porch for anyone wishing to read more about the work of this charity.
This issue concentrates on their "Alternative Christmas gifts from ROPE" where donations will help children, vulnerable women and others to learn a skill to become self-supporting.
Of special interest is a "Women Walking 4 Women" event on Saturday, 19th September 2020; I know it is a long way off, but Philip and Hilary Derbyshire from St. Mary's Church here in Princes Risborough are planning this walk around our area.
Please take time to browse through this Newsletter.
