The Besom in York is set up as a bridge between those who want to give and those who are in need. It is here to help people to show love in practical ways. They do this by helping those in the church to give their time, money, skills and things to those who are in need.
They have many groups of time givers who give their time to decorate, paint, clean, clear, garden and cook for those in need. These teams are from many churches and Christian groups in York.
