Christmas Appeal

A huge thank you  to everyone who contributed to our annual Christmas appeal – a grand total of over £3,200 has been raised, to be shared between two charities: Doctors Without Borders/ Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) and Barnabas Fund.   Thanks too to everyone who brought washbags for the Crisis appeal – pictured below under the Christmas tree.  Over sixty washbagswere delivered to the local office for distribution on Christmas Day.
