CHRISTIAN AID WEEK COLLECTION – Many thanks to everyone who participated in the annual door to door collection for Christian Aid week. The week started well with the sum of £527 raised in donations at the Big Brekkie event on 13/5/18 after the morning service. Currently, including the aforementioned sum, £3800 has been raised by Greenbank collectors on behalf of Christian Aid. This total will also benefit from gift aid from those who completed this option with their donation. I think that this figure represents a remarkable achievement when considering the challenges of voluntary contributions sought for so many deserving causes. Thank you to all who have given of their time and talents to achieve this result. M. Allan
