Charities Supported by Blackheath Villagers

We feel a strong connection to supporting charities within our communities and around the country. So we would like to show our support by listing all the charities that local people support and why. 

If you have a charity you'd like to show your support for please send as photo and description like below to Charlie Bennett at:



For Earth’s Sake CIC is a not-for-profit Community Interest Company that informs and enables people and business to put the planet first and helps to show how we as individuals can make a real difference!

"I have supported Vanessa, Nik and Charlie and FES since I met them on a demonstration in London in 2019. During the pandemic I helped them deliver food to people shielding and worked in the shop for a while too. Vanessa and the team care deeply about the environment and peoples physical and mental well being. And I can reveal they have some very exciting projects coming soon for the local community to be part of"

It is not right that feeling clean should be a luxury or a privilege for anyone in

our society, yet many people in the UK are living in poverty and cannot afford

to stay clean. That is why The Hygiene Bank exists – to give people access to

the basics they need. It is a grassroots charity grounded in community and run entirely by volunteers. The Hygiene Bank Guildford provides packs of hygiene items to those in our community who need them and are struggling with the cost-of- living crisis.

3.1 million people in the UK are living in hygiene poverty, many of whom are children. To help, St Martin’s Church is a Drop-Off Point for much-needed items so they can be distributed to struggling families in our area. The most essential items are the basics such as toothpaste, shampoo, shower gel, soap and washing up liquid. All donated items must be in date and unused. Just leave them inside the Church door and they will be collected. It is that easy!    

You can also donate on-line:

ZERO is a registered charity set up to drive a community-led climate action plan. Promoting education and solutions for climate mitigation and adaptation, they are bringing together the work happening locally to help the borough adapt to a changing planet.

"I think that this is one of the most important organisations set up recently to tackle head on the issue of dealing with our changing climate. Having a presence on the high street enables them to build ties and start a conversation that previously was extremely hard to have. I volunteer here whenever I can"
