Holmes Chapel Christian Aid - Lent 2024

Christian Aid Lent 2024 – A Big Thank You!

Thank you to everyone who supported us at the four Lent lunches and Music Recitals that we ran in March at St Luke’s Church Hall.

I am thrilled to announce that we raised the magnificent net sum of £1,263 which will be sent to Christian Aid to help the needy around the world. This sum includes £461 which was given as donations for the musical recitals held in St Luke’s Church after the Lent lunches and special thanks must go to Wendy Macdonald for kindly organising these events.

Many thanks also to all those who made soup and biscuits, donated fruit and bread and who helped out in any way. We could not have done it without you!

Christian Aid Week is due to start on Sunday 12th May – look out for the red envelopes in your churches and for the volunteers in red tabards and buckets who will be collecting in Holmes Chapel during the week.  

If you feel you would like to help us with the street collection, please call me on 01477 535746 – I will be very happy to chat to you!

Thank you to everyone who supports Christian Aid in and around Holmes Chapel.
