Thank you from Christian Aid

Please would you be so kind as to put the following on your letters page of the Gazette.

I would like to say a big thank you to all your readers who gave so generously to the Christian Aid collection in the Co-op on Saturday 19 May which raised the magnificent sum of £211.64.

Christian Aid’s focus this year is on Sierra Leone one of the poorest countries in the world, still recovering from the brutal civil war. There, Christian Aid together with the Methodist Church of Sierra Leone, is working to improve the sustainable development of many previously impoverished communities so they no longer depend on foreign aid. The Co-op collection, together with money from the house to house collection will be used to further this work.

Thank you to all who have supported Christian Aid week.
