Thanksgiving and the Woolnoth Society

Richard went to an unusual church service today; the 40th Annual Thanksgiving Day service at St Mary Woolnoth.

The service was organised by the Woolnoth Society Charitable Trust (Rich’s boss Dennis is a member of its Council), and featured a sermon from Marilyn McCord Adams.

The Woolnoth Society was set up in 1968, after that year’s Thanksgiving Service, to involve US and other overseas banks in the City of London’s many charities. Its Charitable Trust supports projects in boroughs close to the City serving homeless people, disability groups and similar causes. These include Clerkenwell-based FACT (Federation of Artistic and Creative Therapy) who provide multi-sensory therapy for profoundly disabled children.
