Information for donors
You can make a difference by supporting the SHH Sponsorship Fund.
The fund provides some income for volunteers, usually students, who serve for four weeks or more in the summer. These people might otherwise need to choose a different summertime job.
Our vision for these animateurs is that they bring godly character, energy and creativity to our kids and youth work, making it a fun and life-changing experience for our guests.
We know that the young adults who fulfil these roles often have leadership potential and are likely to make an impact for God’s kingdom in years to come. We ensure that their time at LPO contributes to their growth and maturing, with plenty of learning opportunities and practical experience.
£11 per month sponsors a young volunteer for a week
£65 per month sponsors a high season children’s worker for their whole summer of serving
You can donate by
- Making a monthly contribution by direct debit
- Making a one-off donation online
- Supporting the Sunday offerings at Le Pas Opton. These offerings are shared between several beneficiaries including the Sponsorship Fund.
To be fully donor-funded, we need to raise
about £40,000 each year. Please consider prayerfully about a generous donation that will have a real effect on the life of a volunteer and many guests.
