Charity Day at Open Hands Leicester
At Kingdom Bank, all employees have the opportunity to take a Charity Day each year. This year, I had the privilege of spending a day with Open Hands; a charity which is local to where I live in Leicester.
I was able to join with a group of people on the summer scheme run at Open Hands, which was following the end of an English class course for those wishing to improve their language skills. We met at the Open Hands Compassion Centre and after a social time, we then went to the New Walk Museum where we completed a quiz. We had fun learning the words of different creatures in many languages as the people attending came from all over the world.
Open Hands is there to help people assimilate into our society and build their confidence. They give food, clothes and furniture to enable those in need to set up a home. It was great to spend time with the group and hear individual stories as to how they have been helped by this charity since arriving in Leicester.
Open Hands also run a coffee shop called 6 Degrees Coffee House, where all the profits go directly to the charity. It was great to encourage the volunteers running this new venture and to hear how God brings people through their doors. 6 Degrees is a lovely, relaxed space and I recommend the coffee and cakes! Finally, I was able to spend time in the Open Hands office carrying out some administration work with Beth Corbett.
Open Hands have been recognised nationally and recently have been presented with the Queens Award for Voluntary Service. A special evening of celebration was held on the 5 August 2016 to honour all the volunteers who regularly give their time to the charity.
I loved being involved with all the staff and volunteers on my Charity Day and pray that they are able to continue reaching out to people in my home city of Leicester.

Do you need Trustee Indemnity Insurance?
Charitable Incorporated Organisations (CIO) are sometimes unsure about whether they need Trustee Indemnity Insurance so we hope this document helps trustees make an informed decision
Banking for the Kingdom
Banks don’t always have a good reputation. They have been seen as greedy organisations that are sometimes accused of mis-selling products.
On 18th May we held a Celebration Service, to reflect on what God has been doing through Kingdom Bank over the past year.
