01 May 2018 Christian Aid Week 2018
Christian Aid

We are looking for people who will hand out and collect Christian Aid envelopes This could be done at your place of work or a club you attend. This is a pretty simple task but would make a huge difference. If you placed envelopes on desks one morning during Christian Aid week with a note or an email to ask people to leave the envelopes, preferably with some pennies in, on their desks on a particular day you could whizz around and collect them! A easy way to raise some money and incredibly helpful to Christian Aid. We are also looking for people who will go door to door either delivering or collecting envelopes or both. We have been doing this for over 60 years now and are desperate for volunteers. Can you help by delivering and collecting on your estate or clos or street? A good way to meet your neighbours! Can you fund raise for us during Christian Aid week? Do you have any ideas for your workplace or an individual challenge? Email mchampion@christian-aid.org for more information. THANK YOU!
