Save the Children Stall and Christian Aid Week

May 16, 2017

Christian Aid Week
On the Market Place on Saturday was the Save the Children Stall.
Christian Aid Week
It is also Christian Aid week and there was also a Christian Aid stall. They were asking people to write on a clothes line what they felt they would most need if they arrived in a foreign country as a refugee.

It is 60 years since the first ever such week, and there are still a band of people delivering and collecting Christian Aid envelopes, door to door – not as many as there used to be.

On the Christian Aid website, I see that Emily, aged eight, from Abingon Baptist Church, designed her own Christian Aid envelope and helped do the door to door collection.
