Christian Aid Week 2018

     

This year we had another successful Christian Aid Week at St Matthew’s, managing to raise £871.97; with Gift Aid added the final amount stands at £928.72.

This is slightly down from last year for various reason (the Royal Wedding clashing with the Breakfast being one!) but St Matthew’s still remains the sixth highest giver out of over 30 churches in the Northampton area.
 

 

 




Here is a breakdown of how the money was raised:
 

  Coffee Morning £215.00
  Breakfast £310.00
  Donations through the red envelope handed out in church £323.72
  Collection tin inside the church £23.25
     
  Total Amount £871.97
  Total amount including Gift Aid £928.72


Thanks to all those who have contributed in any way, and special thanks go to Elizabeth March and Jane Roberts for cooking the breakfast, to Alan March for his time, and the general help he gave all morning, and also to Gary for setting up. Thanks also to those who contributed to the fundraising events even though they were unable to attend. Your generosity by purchasing tickets, donations for the Tombola and raffle prizes has helped quite significantly.

Christian Aid Plan

This year the focus is on Haiti because of the enormous impact on the community following the recent hurricane and in general some of the Caribbean Islands. The money raised will transform the lives of the community in these islands in ways we could not imagine.

Finally, the Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby encouraged us to dig deep into our pockets, and I must say that we did exactly that at St Matthew’s.

Thanks again for all your support.
