Christian Aid Week

Very soon a collector will call, or an envelope will appear on your doormat, asking for a donation to Christian Aid.  Over the last 10 years £17,618.46 (net of Gift Aid) has been very generously given from Milborne Port, Milborne Wick and Goathill, which has supported the work of this organisation in the poorest countries and in disaster areas throughout the world.  This year the focus is on reducing the dangers of childbirth.  Did you know that Sierra Leone is the world’s most dangerous place to give birth?  Your donation could help to build a health clinic in places such as this.

As usual our local printer, Remous, is generously providing the slips which will be left if no-one is returning to collect your gift, and Wayne the Butcher, The Milborne Port Pharmacy and the Co-op have once again very kindly agreed to host our collecting boxes.  We would like to raise more than last year (£1,102.03) but to do this we need your help.  Not only do we ask you to support this cause, but we also need more volunteers to deliver envelopes and slips.  If you are willing to give Christian Aid an hour of your time, please telephone me (01935 812209) or Anne Salkeld (01963 250529).  Thank you for reading this.
