Marshland Benefice fundraising Christian Aid Week

Once again we are approaching Christian Aid Week, when we try to focus on
those in many parts of the world – more than ever this year – whose lives are
a daily fight with loss, poverty and uncertainty. It is, surely, an opportunity to
reflect on all that we have and enjoy in our own corner of God's Universe.
Christian Aid tell the story of Aline in Burundi, who endured an early marriage
which ended in abuse and violence. Separated from her six children, she slept
on the the streets, determined to find a way to turn her life around. Christian
Aid helped to transform her life.

May I encourage YOU to support our Benefice-wide effort, by attending the
Coffee Morning from 10 – 12 noon on Saturday 18th May? We need a
stallholder with green fingers to run the garden stall and cake bakers and
helpers with refreshments on the day. There will be a book stall, raffle (prizes
needed) and any suggestions for stalls or help will be welcome. PLEASE may
we join together to meet one another from one end of the Benefice to the other
and raise money for this worthy cause.

Any contributions to me, Barbara Partington, at 33, Newgate, Kirby Cane.
