Christian Aid Events in May 2017

Christian Aid Week Volunteers are needed to deliver (11th-14th May) and to collect (14th-20th May) Christian Aid envelopes door to door.  We’ve managed to cover our district every year so far and we hope to do so again this year.  The more of you who volunteer, the easier this task will be for everyone. Any questions?  Please see Jill Rennie or Janice Colgan.
