Thanks for the money collected since the last report: we now have passed the first £1000 – over a fifth of the way there!
A further £20 came in from Edmondson birthday barbecue at Vickerstown, Millom have contributed £165 from their Lent Lunches, Askam have collected £70-00 from their Sisterhood and also devoted one of their Saturday coffee mornings to the appeal, raising another £24-25.
Thanks too to Trinity Business Ladies for organising a coffee afternoon which raised £416-00. The grand total is now £1191-15.
Please pass any money for the community partnership through your church accounting system in the usual way, and then send it to Bob Mantle (payable to South West Cumbria United Area but with a clear note saying it is for Christian Aid).
I have a display about the project and how a community partnership works that I will happily lend to anyone holding an event, and a labelled sweet jar which
makes an eye-catching collection point. Imaginative ideas welcomed!
