Christian Aid Week 2020
(10th — 16th May)
Karen Fewster (Chair, Farnham & District Christian Aid) writes:
“It will come as no surprise to you to know that Christian Aid Week will be different this year. There will be events and worship but these will all be ‘virtual’. There will be no street collections or door to door envelopes.
“The likely effect of this is that, from Farnham alone, the donations will be down some £15,000.
“I know that the focus at the moment is on COVID-19 locally — but Christian Aid is dealing with the same virus in refugee camps in Africa and Asia, where soap is a luxury and clean water non-existent. East Africa has just seen the worst plague of locusts for many years! So we need a steady stream of donations to fund Christian Aid’s work.”
WHAT CAN WE DO?
- Donation on line is prefered — please use:
- Or telephone donations to: 020-7523-2269
- Or send SMS text ”HELP“ to 70020 to give £ 5
Christian Aid Farnham hopes to hold a few events later in the year, once we are clear of the current social distancing requirement.
In 2019, Christian Aid supporters across the Farnham area raised £22,785 for Christian Aid, including events such as street, station and supermarket collections, individual donations and church collections.
Across the whole of the UK and Ireland, Christian Aid raised no less than £7.56 million in 2019, with over 10,000 churches and 40,700 volunteers taking part.You can contact Karen directly using the information below ...
