Dorothy’s Story

Dorothy has been volunteering for our Christmas Appeal for over 30 years, and has been part of the congregation at St Martin-in-the-Fields since childhood. She remembers when the church was helping homeless people in the early 1950s.

‘I’ve belonged to St Martin’s Church since I was a child. My father was a steward. I remember being there as a young woman at Christmas, watching the vicar read the Appeal live from the pulpit. There is something about St Martin’s, the welcoming atmosphere and the work with the homeless.’
