Christian Aid Week 10th to 16th May 2020


 

A Message from Swanage Christian Aid Committee

Dear supporters,

As all of our thoughts are on the Covid-19 situation, we wanted to share an update on Christian Aid’s response and how Christian Aid Week will be taking on a very different look this year! 

We had been planning a variety of activities for Christian Aid Week: an ecumenical service, house-to-house collections and other fund-raising events. Under the current circumstances, sadly, these cannot now go ahead - instead, Christian Aid Week is moving online! Christian Aid has created a vibrant, virtual Christian Aid Week so you can take part with our online community. We would love you to join in to show love for our neighbours near and far, as a global family.  Please consider joining us by sharing the following events and resources during Christian Aid Week:

We invite you to:

Fund-raising plays an important part of Christian Aid Week – so why not organise your own virtual fundraiser during Christian Aid Week?  You might hold:

  • A Zoom coffee morning – invite your friends and family to join you for a chat and a coffee.
  • A soup lunch in your own home – maybe linking up with some friends or family as you eat.
  • A quiz – we know there are a lot of quizzes taking place – why not use your next one to raise some money?
  • There are plenty of other ideas at the following link:

 Each year the people of Swanage are very generous in their support for Christian Aid and last year our house to house collections resulted in £3100 and the total raised for the year was just under £10,000. Please help us to continue to support Christian Aid by donating this Christian Aid Week
