Youth Group Christmas Appeal for Christian Aid
During Advent and Christmastide, St Mary’s Youth Group once again raised money for Christian Aid’s Present Aid Scheme. Parishioners were asked to save the money they would have spent giving Christmas cards to one another, and to give the money towards Present Aid instead. The sum raised was £632.82 and the Youth Group elected for the money to be spent as follows:
5 Chickens; Jerry cans for 30 families; Sand Dam (Zimbabwe);
Basic household pumping well; Biogas tank (Save a tropical forest);
Energy-saving stove; Hygiene kit for Iraqi refugee; 3 Mobile doctors (Palestine);
Mobile health clinic (Kenya).
