Every three months our community support scheme, The John Porter Community Fund, makes a series of donations to local worthy causes. This year, due to coronavirus, one group of organisations that has seen a drop in donations is our cherished local churches. With that in mind, for the latest round of donations, we’ve decided to issue £150 each to:

St Michael and All Angels, Norton

St Peter’s, Pedmore

St Mary’s Church, Oldswinford

St James Church, Wollaston

Our Lady and All Saints, Stourbridge

St James has pledged to use the money for its Safe Families initiative to help local vulnerable families, whilst St Mary’s is to use the cash to refurbish its north porch.
