Christian Aid Week 2018

May 13th to May 19th

Activities in Slinfold

Friday 18th 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 a house-to-house collection will take place. Unfortunately we were unable to get collectors for every house in the village. If we missed you please feel free to drop a donation in at the Rectory.

Volunteers to help with the house-to-house collection 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 tale 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.
