Christian Aid Week, 10th-16th May

By St Peter's Church Office

On 20 April 2020

This year, door-to-door collections during Christian Aid Week can’t go ahead. But that doesn’t mean fundraising itself can’t happen – in fact, it’s positively encouraged.

Visit the Christian Aid website, www.christianaid.org.uk for ideas to get you, your family and friends motivated.

Suggestions on the site include holding a virtual quiz, having a cook-along session, doing virtual craft-making, holding an art competition or a virtual hymn-a-thon or sing-a-long. Or why not encourage someone you know to get sponsored for a personal challenge? 

In previous years collectors from St Peter’s have raised more than £2,000 during Christian Aid Week. The fact that we can’t go out collecting at a time when poorer communities worldwide need support more than ever, makes it even more vital that we get creative and think of other ways of raising money. So, thinking caps on!

Then, once we’re out of lockdown, we have plans for other fundraising activities. And we hear news of a planned fundraising concert for later in the year. Watch this space!
