CHRISTIAN AID WEEK MAY 2019 This year we sent off a cheque to CA for £8238.71. This is only £9.57 less than last year which is marvellous given the current uncertainty in the country. Working together as a team has made this possible and a big thank you to everyone who was involved before, during and after CA week. This money was raised by our street collections throughout our area and £542.30 from the plant sale. Without this our figure would have been considerably down as last year we did not have the plant sale.
Last year we focused on replacing our CROSS ON COBDEN EDGE
Thanks to the support of our local churches, local groups and many individuals we raised the necessary money and on July 23rd the new wooden cross was put in place.
We are so grateful to all who helped in any way to achieve this.
We held a service of Celebration and Thanksgiving under the new cross on Sunday September 16 at 4 pm . The new cross was then dedicated.
