Making for Mpwapwa: Can you help?

When the church reopens we will be running an occasional market stall in the Transept during coffee after Sunday services, in aid of our charity of the year, Pumps for Mpwapwa.

Could you make something for us to sell, to raise money for a solar water pump in the village of Msagali?

handmade cards  ~  flowers from your garden   homemade gifts jams and chutneys  ~  potted plants grown from seed  ~  produce from your allotment…… or whatever you can think of!

Please do use this time at home to build up some stock that we can sell when the stall opens!

We will let you know via notice sheets and here on the website when the stall will be opening – please bring your crafts and produce to the Transept before the 9.30am service on those dates.

We were thrilled to welcome David Barker, Chief Executive of our 2019 Charity of the Year, Youth Talk to our 9.30am service last week to hand over the tremendous sum of £16,280 from our year’s fundraising efforts.

A huge thank you to everyone who donated, bought tickets to events, sponsored Will on his epic A-Z hitchhiking adventure, or got involved in any other way.

You have all made a real difference to the young people now and in the future who will benefit from the help and support of this wonderful charity.

Keep your eyes peeled for news of our Charity of the Year for 2020!
