Team Notices 6 March

Posted on by Tania Birtwistle

The Table-Top Sale today at the Millennium Hall raised £371.20. This brings the total raised for the Christian Aid Project to £5,196.53 – a little over what was asked for, well within the time scale! The £196.53 raised over the target sum will be ‘ring-fenced’ & added to the Christian Aid Week collection. Huge thanks to everyone, in all churches, who have helped with this project.
