 The Besom in Ashtead Epsom and Leatherhead is part of a network of local schemes operating all around the country. The aim is to bridge the gap between those who want to help and local families who are struggling financially or simply because life has got on top of them. Run by a team of Christian volunteers, the introductions come through our relationships with health professionals, charities and social workers. 


These are just some of the ways you can get involved, either on a one-off or regular basis: 

  • homepage 1Giving good quality items of furniture: something you would be happy to have in your own home, like a wardrobe we delivered to a single mum in Leatherhead who didn’t have anywhere to put her clothes.
  • Decorating or gardening or tidying: like a group of volunteers who transformed a children’s bedroom for a young family from peeling lining paper to freshly painted blue and yellow. 
  • Special skills, like DIY, sewing or administration: one of our givers put up side-gate for a family so that the children could play in their garden without their mum worrying about them wandering on to the road; another of our givers spent time with a young mum, showing her how to bake a cake. 
  • Prayer support: we meet every week to pray for Besom and for our local community and would love you to join us. 
  • homepage 2We also welcome financial donations– small or large.

If you would like to help, we would love to hear from you.        Call us on 07904 679380 or
