Christian Aid 2017
In 2016 our community sent a fantastic total of £3,124 to Christian Aid. A large part of that (£2,574) came from events during Christian Aid week itself. Added to that we have the second hand toy sale in the Duchess Anne on Santa Day which has become a real attraction for children and families.
As a warm-up for Christian Aid Week this year our local group is organising a Quiz Night on Friday April 28th. at 7.30pm. in the Duchess Anne. Cost will be £3 per person and you can either come on your own and be allocated a team on the night or why not make up a team (of up to 4) from friends, family, church or colleagues and pit your wits against others for a bit of fun. There will be wee nibbles (like crisps) on the tables but please bring your own drinks along.
Christian Aid Week runs from the 14th. – 20th. May. The local organising group drawn from the three local churches is planning the following fund-raising events:
Second Hand Bookstall at the Duchess Anne on
Donations of books always needed. These can be brought to the Meeting Place at the Duchess Anne on Friday mornings.
The proceeds from The Meeting Place on Friday 19th. will be going to Christian Aid
Bread and Cheese Lunch at the Duchess Anne on 21st. May at 12.30pm.
Adults £5, Primary School Children, £2.
Door to Door collection during the week
Street Collection on Saturday 20th.
