Christian Aid total

Please could you publish as required by law the results of the Christian Aid Week collection in May.

The collection covered Whitby, Aislaby, Littlebeck, Newholm, Ruswarp, Sleights and Sneaton and the total was a magnificent £5,347.04 of which £1,462 was gift aid.

This is almost £200 more than last year and at a time of severe financial hardship shows the generosity of local people in helping those who are less fortunate.

My grateful thanks to all who helped in any way.

Joan H Barker, Whitby Organiser for Christian Aid Week, Argyle Road, Whitby
