In February 2021 our Big Brekkie for Christian Aid was a big success. Big thanks to everyone who came and everyone who has donated.
We had a great time together on line with songs, games, videos, bubbles and much more. Big thanks to Bishop Philip North for opening the event.
The project raises money for women in Ethiopia who are making soap to combat the Coronavirus. The soap is made by women whose normal farming work has been badly affected by global warming.
Over £800 has been raised and the appeal is still open.
The video below explains how the soap for hope project is helping people.
