Thank you for all your continuing support!
Southwell Christian Aid Committee wishes to express its gratitude to all our supporters in in Southwell, and the nearby villages of Edingley, Fiskerton, Halam, Morton, Normanton and Upton. This year has been a very difficult year for everyone. But despite this, a fantastic £5591 has been donated to Christian Aid in 2020.
These funds were raised through our Christian Aid Week Just Giving Page in May and donations of ticket money from our cancelled Lent Lunch. In addition, in September, generous sponsorship was given to our 23 pilgrims who completed a virtual pilgrimage following the route of the Camino Santiago de Compestela, and the parishioners of St Michael the Archangel, Halam, donated their harvest collection to Christian Aid.
At the end of one of the most difficult years the world has faced, these funds will help to build hope for the poorest and most vulnerable people, who continue to face the threats of climate change and now coronavirus.
Hope for young people like Imote in Nigeria, who has struggled to feed his young family due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Imote Ioryue, 21, sadly lost both of his parents at a young age and was left to care for his nine siblings, alone. Due to the devastating coronavirus pandemic, he has been unable to sell the produce from his farm, leaving him unable to buy food or basic household supplies.
Thanks to the faithful and generous giving of our supporters, Imote received cash support from Christian Aid so he can continue to support his young family.
As we continue to stand with our neighbours near and far in crisis, Southwell Christian Aid Committee would like to wish you all every happiness in 2021.
