Champions for Children
BCT is building a movement of Champions for Children who refuse to accept a world where children are marginalised and forced to suffer.
These Champions for ChildrenÂ use their time, skills and influence to help raise awareness of BCT’s work, so that more marginalised children can beÂ reached, helped and enabled to fulfil their God-given potential.Â In the film below, some ofÂ our Champions explain why they want to support BCT.
Want to join them? Here’s what you could do as a Champion…
And if you’re serious about wanting to be a BCT Champion, drop usÂ a line…
Our Champions for Children are of all ages and from diverse backgrounds, but the one thing that they have in common is that they want to make a difference. Below, you can meet some of our fabulous Champions.
John and Josi NystrĂ¶m
The spirit of adventure is alive and well in John and Josi whoÂ chose to driveÂ through several African nations as part of a delayed honeymoon and support BCT in the process! Find out more about John and Josi.
Hilda is a young and spritely lady in her 90s who is totally sold out on championing BCT at her Methodist church and at the residential home where she lives in Teddington. Find out more about Hilda.
Zach and Ivy Welton
Perhaps our youngest Champions, Zach and Ivy are living proof that we should never underestimate children. By hosting a coffee and cakes morning, nine year-old Zach raised well over ÂŁ1,000 for PCM’s gardening and childhood nutrition project. Not to be outdone, his six year-old sister held a similar event ant raised nearly ÂŁ900 to enable Wukwashi to buy wheelchairs for disabled children!
Singing is at natural as breathing to Alex – an experienced singer-songwriter who is well known and much-loved in Kenya, his country of origin. So when Alex wanted to become a Champion for BCT, his first thought was to write a song to help raise awareness of what weâ€™re all about. Find out more about Alex.
