Christian Aid 2018
In 2017 our community sent a fantastic total of £3,320 to Christian Aid, a large part of which came from events during Christian Aid week itself. Added to that we had the secondhand toy sale in the Duchess Anne on Santa Day has become quite an attraction for children and families and also raises quite a bit of money for Christian Aid and CHAS.
As a warm-up for Christian Aid Week this year our local group is organising a Quiz Night on Friday May 4th at 7.30pm in the Duchess Anne. Cost will be £3 per person and you can either come on your own and be allocated a team on the night or why not make up a team (of up to 4) from friends, family, church or colleagues and pit your wits against others for a bit of fun. There will be wee nibbles (like crisps) on the tables but please bring your own drinks along. To enter a team (or as an individual) please contact Jean Peacock on firstname.lastname@example.org
