Last Friday, six volunteers from the church took turns to stand with a collecting bucket in the Tring Road Tesco Superstore. It was well worth it, raising £140.19 for Christian Aid
Organiser Jennie Torpey received a letter of thanks from the charity. Saskia Hoskins, Christian Aid's Regional Office Co-ordinator, wrote the following, "For over 70 years, Christian Aid has relied on volunteers... like yourselves, to raise funds for us so that we can help our global neighbours in need. We're extremely thankful to you all for putting your beliefs into action. Without you, Christian Aid's work helping those in need in some of the world's poorest areas would not be possible.
