Christian Aid Update

Christian Aid Update

Sadly, this year we will not be able to have our normal programme of events for Christian Aid Week, but even in these difficult times, it is still important for us to support Christian Aid and their partners in the work they do. This year they are concentrating on the drought situation in Kenya, where people like grandmother Rose walk for six hours a day to collect water for her grandchildren. A simple earth dam could change their lives.

If you have been filling a Smartie box with coins, please continue to do so and post the full boxes through the letterbox at the Leckie Memorial Church – last year we raised almost £700 in this way.

We have also set up a JustGiving page for Peebles and District Christian Aid Week and have set a target of £5000.  The page can be found at              https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/Peebles-Christian-Aid

It is to be hoped that folk in Peebles and the surrounding area will be as generous as ever this year.  Last year we raised a total of £8900.

If you use the JustGiving page, it enables us to track local donations, but other ways in which you can contribute to Christian Aid Week are by phone at 08080 006 006, online at www.caweek.org, or by SMS by texting GIVE to 70040 to donate £5.
