Lent Appeal

For several years we have used the Lent appeal to raise money for the education and keep of Aaron Mujjimbire, a Ugandan orphan.  Aaron has now left school but is continuing in further education to improve the employment opportunities open to him.  We have agreed to fund this further education and his extended family are going to help towards his accommodation costs.  A letter from Aaron is on the noticeboards of St Mary's and St Nicholas'.
Containers are at the back of both churches for those who wish to donate to the appeal.  If you would like to Gift Aid your donation, please use a yellow envelope, marking it Lent Appeal and adding your name and address or personal donation number.
