Members of St Andrew’s have again proved themselves to be generous in financial giving by supporting the “Hospice at Home” appeal locally, and the Azul Wasi “Blue House” project for homeless children in Peru. Just a little over £5,000 has been raised for the two charities so far from personal donations and a raft of fund-raising activities.
St Andrew’s Church has a permanent and personal link into the Blue House project and will continue to support this work through 2007. Whilst there is a need to provide financial support to maintain the fabric and on-going activity of the church, giving to external causes is seen as part of the Christian stewardship of the congregation. Every year funds are raised and sent to various charitable causes on behalf of the whole church.
The next event in aid of the Blue House will be a Beetle Drive in St Andrew’s Hall, on Saturday, 20th January 2007. Contact the Parish Administrator for further details (303469).
