Two cows for Christmas!!
Christ Church responded to our Christmas appeal/challenge by raising enough money to buy 2 cows at Christmas 2021. This gift will make a such a difference to two families (who we shall never meet) but whose lives, livelihoods and sense of hope and worth will be changed for the better as a result of this donation. We are so grateful for the support received for this fundraising initiative. I wonder what we could add to the Christ Church virtual farm next?!
Christian Aid week 2022 is from 15th – 21st May. We are planning to hold a Big Breakfast to raise funds for Christian Aid one Saturday in May or June. Watch this space for a date to be confirmed!”
Christian Aid’s ground-breaking work began in 1945, when the charity was founded by British and Irish churches to help refugees following the Second World War.
For more than 75 years, Christian Aid has provided humanitarian relief and long-term development support for poor communities worldwide, while highlighting suffering, tackling injustice and championing people’s rights.
Together with its supporters and partners Christian Aid aims:
- to expose poverty throughout the world
- to help in practical ways to end it
- to highlight, challenge and change the structures and systems that favour the rich and powerful over the poor and marginalised.
We stand together. For dignity. For equality. For justice.
