Christian Aid Week 2019

May 12th to May 18th

Activities in Slinfold

Friday 17th May
Coffee Morning 8.30 - 11.30 in St. Peter's church Slinfold. Cakes, plants, books etc for sale. Donations for these stalls gratefully received

During the week we will be dropping envelopes house-to-house inviting you to drop a donation in at the Rectory or the church.

Volunteers to help with the house-to-house deliveries will be eagerly welcomed.

At the back of St Peter's church you can find a recycled plastic bottle for collecting 'Pat's Pennies'. Pat was one of our earliest volunteers and originated the idea of collecting your small change throughout the year. The format varies slightly each year; we have had a 'mile of pennies' 'pounds of pennies' 'copperplate Pat's wall' 'a barrowful of pennies' etc. but we have been collecting this 'Small Change To Make Large Changes In The Poorest Lives' for at least 30 years now. Please take a 'Pat's Penny Pot' to collect for next year.

The committee will always be glad to hear of suggestions for fund-raising ideas and volunteers to help. Click here to contact us

Christian Aid aims to help people who need help, irrespective of race or creed. This is our attempt to help raise money for this work.
