Thank You to everyone who supported Christian Aid Week.
We did exceptionally well this year and a grand total of
£1107.85 was raised. With gift aid a further £81.00 will
be added to this. This is the highest amount we have
raised in well over 10 years.
The focus this year was on expectant mums in Sierra
Leonne. Our donations could help to build more health
clinics, provide health training and improve hygiene so
mums and babies could live long and happy lives.
How did we do this?
A Coffee Morning and Tombola was held on Saturday 11
May, when £233.50 was raised.
A total of 35 people sat down to a Big Brekkie on
Saturday 18 May. We raised £365.00 at this event.
Envelopes handed out in church raised £509.35.
I would like to thank those members of the congregation
who couldn’t attend one or both of the events but kindly
Also, many thanks to all those who contributed in any
way. Special thanks to Elizabeth for always doing the
tombola, did the shopping for the breakfast and along
with Marva did the cooking. Gary for printing the
posters and tickets and setting up for the breakfast and
clearing up afterwards. Glenda for helping out
throughout the morning. Jean and Christine M for helping
to serve and clear up afterwards. Chris L-T for helping
at the coffee morning. All those who gave prizes for
both raffles and items for the tombola and made cakes.
And lastly to Fr Nicholas Gandy for the opening prayer
at the Breakfast as Fr Nicholas Setterfield was unable
to attend due to being away with the choir.
