East African Famine Appeal
Members and friends may wish to know that the church has been able to donate £1,050 to 'All We Can' (the operating name of the Methodist Relief & Development Fund) in response to the East Africa Famine Appeal.
This was raised from the recent two retiring collections and a Wednesday Fellowship collection, supplemented by £500 from Sunday lunches.
Approximately £400 was gift aided and the total to All We Can will be about £1,150.
