Christian Aid Week 15th-21st May

Christian Aid Week 2016

Volunteers are needed

For house-to- house collections in Harborne. Envelopes need to be delivered early in the week and then collected later in the week. Some people have already signed up but we still need more volunteers.

Pathfinders and the Rangers have already volunteered to deliver some envelopes for us and so they just need collecting.

Raising money

Last year the St John’s Team raised almost £3000 and it would be good if we could top this figure in 2016!

No cows this year, instead Christian Aid are focussing on providing Home Safety Packages for people living in flooded areas of Bangladesh.

Home Safety Packages

The packs provide materials to raise homes on a plinth giving a safe place to rebuild, keep livestock and grow essential crops; together with money to buy a cow, goat, ducks & chickens, vegetable seeds and a composting wormery.

This provides the people with an income long term.
