Christian Aid week 12th-18th May 2024

The organisers of Peebles Christian Aid Week have asked me to make this request to gardeners in the congregation. They would like help with the ever popular Plant Stall through donations of seedlings, cuttings and plants of all varieties and sizes as well as any gardening tools and materials no longer needed. Every year everything which has been donated is sold and more donations will certainly increase the financial contribution the stall makes to Christian Aid Week. The Stall will be held on Saturday May 18th and plants can be brought to the St Andrews Leckie church hall on the previous Friday evening. John Hutchinson on 720885 can provide more details.

Also, we will, as usual during Christian Aid week, be delivering an envelope for donations to Christian Aid to every house in the town. This has been a very successful way of raising funds in past years. If you would be willing to put a few envelopes through some doors we would much appreciate that. No need for collecting them, just delivery. Please contact Fiona Lumb on 07872 838764 if you would like to help with this. This year the funds raised will be used to help families in the greatest need across the world escape the trap of poverty and fulfil their ambitions.
