The Bramhall and Woodford Christian Aid Committee would like to thank all those who donated to Christian Aid Week in May. Although the total was less than previous years when house to house collections took place, a total of £1360 was donated, either directly to the Web site or through the local churches who support this work. This will increase further when the additional 25% contributed by the Government is taken into account on those donations which were Gift Aided. Many charities have experienced significant reductions in donations this last few months and this money will enable Christian Aid to continue to provide support and help to some of the poorest communities worldwide.
The amount collected was annotated by members of the public on the Christian Aid website with our local reference number. We will organise a special one-off collection when we eventually return as a Church.
