Jennie Torpey: June 2018
Despite having fewer collectors this year, our house-to-house collection raised £664.08.
We had an early Christian Aid Sunday service in April and then a retiring collection at the Circuit Celebration Service on 20th May, and, including some extremely generous donations, the two together raising £1,351.81. J Team made little houses and filled them with coins, giving a further £40.72. All this, together with the collection at St Marys Church, which we organise, the final total sent to Christian Aid for their amazing work, was £2,204.61. Of this, £1,238 was Gift-Aided, meaning that Christian Aid can reclaim the tax, bringing the total to £2,514.11 !! Our best result for years! THANK YOU!!
