The total amount raised through the jam jars this year was £379.20. This was added to the total raised throughout the year through the monthly teas/coffees, the Harvest Festival donations and other donations including £100 from the Forget-Me-Not Group, and a sum of £1151.10 was transferred this week to Christian Aid. Thank you to everyone who contributed in any way to this splendid total. Any jars still to be counted will go towards our 2020 total. For those of you who like to keep saving your small change throughout the year there are Small Change, Big Difference Boxes available at the rear of the church and on the tea/coffee tables. Thank you for helping Christian Aid to carry on with its fight against poverty and inequality.
Tea & Coffee will be served immediately after the Service this morning. Donations will be used for the ongoing work of Christian Aid.
