Jennie Torpey: April 2017
Christian Aid Week this year is 14th — 20th May. We hold house-to-house collections around Aylesbury, but are only able to cover a handful of streets. If you think you would like to help with this, we would very much welcome a few more collectors, especially since some of our original collectors have had to 'retire'. You have a choice of putting a collection envelope through doors and returning a few days later to collect them in, or to make one visit using a collecting tin. It need only take an hour or two in total. We also have a small group who collect together in one area. If you would like to know a little more before making up your mind, please speak to Jennie Torpey, Aylesbury 581414 or Maureen Tucker Aylesbury 486619. To see the Christian Aid Website, click here.
