Jennie Torpey: May 2019
Although we had fewer collectors this year, our house-to-house collection for Christian Aid has so far raised £473.83, with a few donations still to come. The retiring collection on Christian Aid Sunday amounted to £448.76. All this, together with the collection at St Mary's Church, which we organise, the final total so far is £1,081.34. Of this, £546 was gift aided, meaning that Christian Aid can reclaim the tax, bringing the total to £1,217.84 !
So thank you to everyone who contributed in any way to help remove poverty and change lives. For the Christian Aid website, click here.
