To all who joined, supported and helped with the Christian Aid (CA) Advent Service last Sunday. We were thrilled by the size, diversity and generosity of the response: over 150 people from at least 9 different churches came and donated £918.41 (including £613.05 Gift Aid). A special thank you to Marija Vranešević from ‘Philanthropy’, Serbian Orthodox Church who spoke of her work with refugees on the Serbian/Macedonian border, to James Waite – organist, Elaine Foakes who led the music, the Windsor Community Orchestra and pupils of Trevelyan & St Peter’s schools who performed & sang, to the Castle Hotel for delicious food and to Fr David who supported us all.
A further message of thanks from Sarah regarding Christian Aid:
‘A big thank you to all Christian Aid collectors who joined us in Peascod Street last Saturday. We filled the street with balloons on a bright but chilly day and raised £344.29 in 3hours!
Well done everyone’ - Sarah
