The people of Mirfield have outdone themselves this year as they have raised £2,708.20 for the charity Christian Aid during its annual fundraising week, May 15-21.
The home owners, churchgoers, and public passing by donated generously and gave £650 more than they raised in last year’s Christian Aid Week.
The money given is the equivalent to helping start a nursery and the education for 100 poor children in small Egyptian village.
We are extremely grateful to the people of Mirfield giving to help people help themselves out of poverty and to all the volunteers that made this happen.
The money raised will have made a significant improvement some of the world’s poorest communities.
