The Besom Ballynahinch undertakes a range of projects in the Ballynahinch district and further afield.

Blessings Flow

The Besom provides a wide variety of opportunities for people to reach out into the community and help others in practical ways.

In recent months it has been encouraging to see how items provided have met specific needs. One example of this was when some clothes which had been donated proved to be just the right size and style for a young foreign man whose needs came to our attention.

Other projects included work in an elderly gentleman's home and, in another home, some redecoration, which enabled a young mother to have her children home for Christmas.

People met through early projects when the Besom - Ballynahinch first started out, were revisited just before Christmas and much-appreciated Christmas hampers were delivered.

Giving Things

If you have good quality items you wish to give away, The Besom at Ballynahinch would love to receive them. We can pass them on to vulnerable people who really need them. This includes homeless people who have been rehoused, refugees and families in need. Some example of items in need are: furniture, linen, non-perishable food, crockery, towels, curtains, toys, cutlery, kitchen equipment.

Giving Money

If you are unable to give time or things you may be able to give money. Any amount, large or small will be well used.


The Besom team are committed to prayer being a central part of The Besom at Ballynahinch.
