Every May, during Christian Aid Week, about 130 collectors from churches in Chelmsford collect door to door to support Christian Aid’s work in 37 countries across the world. Last year, together with other fund-raising activities arranged during the week, over £21,000 was raised.
This year Christian Aid Week was due to be held between 10-16 May but, due to the Covid-19 pandemic, there will be no house to house collections and no face to face activities. This will, of course, have a tremendous impact on Christian Aid’s work – £8.6 million was raised across the country during Christian Aid Week last year.
For over 70 years, Christian Aid has been standing with the poorest of our neighbours, with people of all faiths and none, to stand up for dignity, equality and justice. Let’s stand together with our neighbours near and far.
By making a donation here – with Gift Aid if possible – the money will go straight to Christian Aid. Please be as generous as you can in these difficult times.
