What the charity thinks...
Give as you Live's online fundraising pages came into their own during the long months of lockdown, sustaining parishes' ability to minister hope and help into their local communities.
As we emerge from this time of challenge and difficulty, the parishes of the Catholic Diocese of Portsmouth are eager to make best use of the support and opportunities provided by Give as you Live's fundraising technology, as we adapt our methods to reflect the unchanging Good News of God's love.
