On Thanksgiving Sunday we asked members of the Planned Giving Scheme to review their giving to enable us to donate to Christian causes locally, nationally and internationally.  We are delighted that 28 people felt able to increase their donations and 6 new people joined the scheme.  As a result total donations will rise by £5,186 (7%) for the year.  Thank you to everybody who is a member of the Planned Giving Scheme and for your continued donations which support the work at St Luke’s and in the wider community.
