Christian Aid Week 2019

Christian Aid thank-you envelopeA huge thank-you to everyone who took part in this year’s Christian Aid Week at Cumbernauld Old Parish Church. We recently counted the money collected and are delighted to announce that £1900.29 was raised by the door-to-door, congregation and ‘neighbours’ donations. A further £311 was raised at the Boys’ Brigade Annual Display.

When one adds the Gift Aid pledged on those donations, the final total raised for Christian Aid is a wonderful £2433.83.

That is an impressive amount of money, especially as there were only six door-to-door collectors this year. Thanks are due to them, and to our BB Company, but also to everyone in the congregation who invited their ‘Christmas Card neighbours’ to donate; this really has made a huge difference to the total amount raised. This contribution to Christian Aid will hopefully have a considerable impact on the women of Sierra Leone.

Thanks again, everyone!
