Christian Aid 2017
The Dunkeld and Birnam Christian Aid committee would like to thank everyone who helped out with events during Christian Aid Week.
The weather for the second-hand book sale was a bit mixed but this has proved to be a popular event.
Thanks to all who donated books and to the folk who sort through them, set up and man the stall. The amount raised this year through our local efforts is broken down like this:
Street Collection 141.80
Door to door 1,457.09
Coffee Morning 172.20
Sponsor Event 490.40
(Sean Hanafin ate for 5 days on a grand total of £1.97!)
Gift Aid at 25% adds another 250.00
If you tried the ‘Singers/Bands’ quiz which was on sale at the church for a few weeks and are still puzzling over one or two questions, here are the right answers:
1. Beatles. 2. Doris Day. 3. Oasis. 4. Black Sabbath. 5. Beach Boys. 6. Vera Lynn. 7. Little Mix. 8. Rolling Stones. 9. Wet Wet Wet. 10. Louis Armstrong. 11. Hollies. 12. Dean Martin. 13. Elvis Presley. 14. Buddy Holly. 15. Judas Priest. 16. Max Bygraves. 17. T Rex. 18. Cliff Richard. 19. One Direction. 20. Arctic Monkeys. 21. Eagles. 22. Tommy Steele. 23. Moody Blues. 24. Guns
N Roses. 25. Fleetwood Mac. 26. Swinging Blue Jeans. 27. Dusty Springfield. 28. Frankie Goes to Hollywood. 29. Pet Shop Boys. 30. Mike and the Mechanics.
Two correct sheets were returned, one from Blairgowrie and the other from Ann Rees, Butterstone.
Once again thank you to the committee and to everyone who helped raise money for some of the world’s poorest communities.
