Champions for Children

champions logo RGB

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 Children use their time, skills and influence to help raise awareness of BCT’s work, so that more marginalised children can be reached, helped and enabled to fulfil their God-given potential.

Want to find out more? Here’s what you could do as a Champion…

And if you’re serious about wanting to be a BCT Champion, drop us 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 Nyström

Long-term Champions, John and Josi, laid on an evening to remember with their ROOTS event at St Luke’s Church, West Norwood. John and Josi hosted and paid for the event, which included a presentation on BCT’s work from our Director, Susie Howe, and an electrifying set from singer-songwriter, Ben Okafor. ROOTS was a terrific event in itself, and it was hugely helpful in raising funds and awareness for the work of BCT and our partners. Find out more about John and Josi.


Hilda Oliver

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

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 we’re all about. Find out more about Alex.

BCT needs people from all walks of life who will speak up for marginalised children. Could you raise awareness of BCT’s work in your church and amongst your friends?
