Christian Aid Update September 2021Written by Carole Cox
The Romsey Committee of Christian Aid are delighted to have raised a total of £4,866.99 to date, with 2 major fund-raising events still to come.
On 2 October the committee is planning another book stall in the Market Place. We have plenty of books to sell but do need buyers to buy them! So, book the date and meet us there.
Also, John Reeves from Romsey Baptist Church is seeking sponsors for a sponsored cycle ride. John plans to ride 100 miles over 4 days, 25 miles a day. His thoughts are to time it during either the week before half term in October, or perhaps during the half term as he hopes that children will be enthused to join in even if they only ride a few miles. He is going to plan 4 routes, one to each of east, west, north and south of Romsey, and suggests that a good starting point is the Co-op at Abbotswood. More details in next month’s magazine.
We are urgently looking for a representative from Abbey URC to serve on the local committee. If you would like to be involved with helping the local committee raise awareness, and much needed funds for Christian Aid, please contact me.
