Piddington with Horton have supported Makeni Ecumenical Centre in Lusaka, Zambia, for many years through the money people donate for coffee after church services. MEC is a non-governmental development organisation with a focus on improving the lives of people in the area through education, medical services, and agricultural development.
For an insight into what goes on in Makeni see http://makeni.org.uk/.
St John the Baptist Piddington also raises money for local causes, including the Northampton food bank and Hope Centre. Donations of tinned food items and other goods can be made via a box inside the church which is regularly emptied and taken to the food bank.
