Saturday 20th May Christian Aid Week Big Breakfast event at All Saints’ School
Thank you to all the Appley Bridge folk who supported our Big Brekkie for Christian Aid on Saturday morning May 20th at All Saints School.
The event exceeded all our hopes and prayers, and thanks to the help of so many members of our congregation and the generosity of those who have attended we have raised £750. This means that All Saints will have provided funds to buy two valuable cows for communities in Ethiopia, a refrigeration system for a refugee camp in North Africa to preserve food and drink at the right temperature, and two stoves to provide cooking facilities for up to 50 refugees in temporary accommodation.
Our Traidcraft shop was also well supported, takings were just short of £200-00 on the morning.
The atmosphere was wonderful, getting off to the right start with an inspired opening by the Bishop of Burnley, the Rt Rev Philip North, who reminded us of the Gospel imperative to share the love of God with our neighbours, and thanks to the multitude of activities including games hosted by our Brownie and Guide groups, Colouring competition, face painting, bookstall, Jacobs Well stall, Tradecraft shop, breakfast cafe, and our Prayer Table, the morning really went with a swing!
Thanks to all those who helped to set up, organise and participate in our first ever Big Brekkie, and we look forward to making it into an annual event at All Saints.
