£18,500 collected in Farnham during Christian Aid Week 2017
Thanks to the generosity of the people of Farnham and the surrounding villages, Christian Aid Farnham raised over £18,500 during the week.
These donations ensure that Christian Aid can continue its work, offering vital assistance to refugees, while also working to eradicate extreme poverty, fight injustice, demand changes in the way tax is paid in poor countries (and at home) and highlight the effects of climate change on agriculture and the wider world.
On behalf of Christian Aid Farnham, Karen Few said: “I would like to say a very big thank you to everyone who gave so generously and a special thank you to the fantastic volunteers who faced very wet conditions out on the streets of Farnham delivering and collecting envelopes and those who collected donations in Farnham town on the particularly wet Saturday. Thank you on behalf of Christian Aid.”
