Welcare 125th Anniversary Service of Thanksgiving, Southwark Cathedral, 15th June 2019

The Lord-Lieutenant will be represented by Mrs Rosemary Dymond DL at a Service of Thanksgiving celebrating Welcare’s 125th Anniversary, to be held in Southwark Cathedral on 15th June 2019 at 11.00.

Welcare was founded by the Bishop of Rochester, Randall Davidson and his wife Edith, in 1894 in response to the desperate need of single, homeless young girls and women.  Throughout the decades its role has progressed and developed to ensure it reflects the needs of the communities it serves.

The Service of Thanksgiving will celebrate Welcare’s work with families over the years, and look forward to a bright and positive future. Trustees, staff, and young people will contribute to the service through specially chosen readings and hymns.
