Christian Aid

 

 

Christian Aid has more than 70 years’ experience of working in partnership to support communities to thrive. We tackle the root causes of poverty so that women, men and children the world over are strengthened against future knocks. And if disasters happen, we get people the help they want straight away.

We, in St Ninian’s Church, actively support Christian Aid by fundraising in the Church and within the Parish enabling Christian Aid to help communities in the developing world.

In 2018, our regular activities raised:

Forth Bridge Crossing                                                 £3,033

Christian Aid Week                                                     £3,302

Christian Eve Collection                                                £990

In addition, retiring collections raised the following:

Kerala Flood Appeal                                                   £1,118

Indonesia Tsunami Appeal                                             £781

The total raised in 2018 by St Ninian’s was                  £9,225

Many thanks to everyone who helped raise such a wonderful total last year.

Can we better it in 2019?

This year Christian Aid Week runs from 12 to 18 May and the dates of our events are:

SATURDAY 11 MAY                                                     FORTH BRIDGE CROSSING

SUNDAY     12 MAY                                                     SOUP AND SWEET LUNCH

SUNDAY     12 – SATURDAY 18 MAY                        CHRISTIAN AID WEEK

The sponsored walk across the Forth Road Bridge with a real mix of ages is great fun and not too tiring! 

The Door to Door Collection during Christian Aid Week only takes a few hours of a collector’s time but is worth its weight in gold! Returning to the same street annually is like meeting up with old friends while at the same time helping others in real need.

New collectors would be most welcome.
