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.

We are called to listen to those on the margins, seek good news for the poor, and stand up for those who are vulnerable — whether that is families who are struggling today, or future...
