All Saints Pickwell & Leesthorpe is a rural parish, dominated by farming. The FCN supports farming families directly affected by such issues as poor mental and physical health, loneliness and isolation, financial and livestock issues, providing free and confidential support through the FCN telephone helpline and on farm support by trained volunteers every day of the year. As a whole community, residents of Pickwell & Leesthorpe raised funds for the charity by writing seasonal greetings on a gift tag for a display on the church noticeboard in the centre of the village, and making a donation reflecting the saving from the cost of sending individual cards. The church added the money collected at the Christmas Day service and in excess of £900 (inc Gift Aid) was raised for the Leicestershire and Rutland Support Group of FCN.
