GOOD NEWS! GOOD NEWS!
Good news! The UK Government will double every pound you donate this Christmas, so even more lives can be saved.
At Christmas, we celebrate the hopes of humanity focused on a tiny baby. He was born to a young mother with nowhere but a stable to welcome him into the world.
A joyful night. The night a child was born who would change the course of history. But not every child born in a stable survives.
Together we can spare mums the anguish of losing a child, and make sure more babies never have to lose their mothers.
The money raised (£185) from our Church Christmas card (in which people insert greetings for their church friends and make a donation to Christian Aid), will buy gifts from the Christian Aid Present Aid catalogue. This year we will use it to buy a mobile clinic, some goats and chickens and some vegetable seeds.
This money donated by Radford Road Church will be doubled by the UK Government.
Christian Aid also had a collection in the Royal Priors when a small choir, mainly from the Baptist Church, sang carols. £114.24 was collected.
