The Besom in Thurrock was launched on 7th November 2005. We are, like all other Besoms, a bridge focussed on those who have and want to give to those who are in need.
How To Get Involved
Giving Time, Money, Skills or Things
Most of the work in Thurrock is presently carried out on Tuesdays when collections and deliveries of furniture, clothing and household items take place. You can choose what you would like to do and activities range from going out on the van to collect and deliver furniture to sorting and ironing clothes and making up boxes of things for recipients. You can also accompany us on furniture assessments or help with simple admin tasks. There is something for everyone! We start our day at 9.30am but you can choose how much or how little of your time you’d like to give.
The Besom in Thurrock also provides for people who want to give time in a group. We can arrange for your house, cell or home group to decorate, clean, garden or do simple DIY in recipients homes. All you need to do is call or email us to discuss what you’d like to do.
There are many other ways that members and groups from Thurrock churches can get involved by giving time as a group or an individual, giving things and/or giving money. We apply the principle that people in need do not have a choice and should not, therefore, receive anything but the best quality items or service that can be given. Our question would therefore be “Would you like to receive the things that you are giving?”
You can contact the Besom office on 01375 411806 anytime. There is an answer-phone for you to leave your message and someone will get back to you in due time. You can e-mail on firstname.lastname@example.org for further information.
