Accommodation wanted

Young lady moving to Brussels in the last weekend of July would need accommodation for 3-6 months and maybe even more. She would like to rent a room+bathroom with a Christian family or share a house/apartment with other Christian people.  It would be wonderful for the location to be not too far from the European Quarters.

The British Charitable Fund (BCF)

The British Charitable Fund (BCF) was created by the Duke of Wellington in 1815 following the Battle of Waterloo to take care of wounded soldiers and their families. The Fund remains in operation today assisting British nationals or their spouses in Belgium financially and morally.  The Charity’s patron is H.M. Philippe, King of the Belgians. Its President is H.E. Alison Rose, British Ambassador to Belgium.  Holy Trinity has had a long association with BCF.  Currently our pastoral assistant Janet Sayers is on the committee representing HT thus keeping up the supportive link.  In June 2015 BCF celebrated its bicentennial year along with the commemorations of the Battle of Waterloo, and it did a great job to raise its profile during that year.  The Fund is now actively pursuing a publicity campaign in order to increase the awareness of its existence and activities.  For more info contact Janet Sayers.
