CHRISTIAN AID WEEK 13th – 19th MAY

The theme this year is: ‘Together we’re stronger than the storms’. People living in Haiti have fought hurricane after hurricane.

Many have lost their homes after the last disaster and are still living in a 2m x 2m concrete block. They are not just survivors, they are fighters but they need our support to help them to re-build their homes, which will withstand a hurricane.

Your support during Christian Aid Week will help Christian Aid to support these families.
There are events in each of our villages and we look forward to welcoming you to any of them or, if this is not possible, to support the door to door collections across our villages.

Saturday 12 May Coffee Morning 10.30am – 12.30pm at Jan Hodge’s, 1 Poundfold, Croscombe

Thursday 17th May: Coffee Evening from 7.00pmat Ruth Eavis’, Hazelmount, Pilton

Sunday 20th May: Cream Teas and Plant Sale 3.30pm – 5.00pm in North Wootton Village Hall

Friday 25th May: Soup, Entertainment and Puddings 7.00pm in Dinder Village Hall.

We would welcome any people willing to collect during Christian Aid Week and if you feel you are able, please contact Hilary Austin on: 890561. Envelopes will be in all the churches and can be returned to any church member.

Safe Families for Children Volunteers

It may come as a surprise to you but we have many children and families in need here in Somerset. But many of these families can have their lives changed through contact with a friendly face.

Our Safe Families For Children volunteers provide a range of support to families, from having a chat over a coffee to helping a mum get her toddler to a doctor’s appointment. You could become a Safe Families Volunteer and make a difference in a local family’s life. In most cases it only takes an hour a week.

We would like to meet people who may be interested in befriending and supporting a local family. We are now developing a network of volunteers across South Somerset and Mendip. All volunteers receive an induction and training and we also facilitate a peer to peer support network for our volunteers.

You can make a difference……
