Christian Aid week takes place 10 – 16 May.

There are no face to face fundraising events or collections organised on behalf of Christian Aid this year.  However there are still ways to show your support:

The Christian Aid website (click here) will take people to a very clear and easy to navigate page of ways to participate. Just pick one of the tabs that suits your level of participation:

  • DONATIONS is a straight-forward donation facility
  • E-ENVELOPE is to share with friends and supporters the option of donating to Christian Aid
  • VIRTUAL FUNDRAISER is to either take part in prayers on the Christian Aid Facebook page at 1pm on 10 May or take part in daily reflections 11 – 16 May at 11am. Alternatively, take part in a fun daily quiz, 11 – 16 May at 7.30pm, or join the Quiztian Aid quiz anytime that suits you

The Chester Christian Aid committee have set up a Just Giving page here.

People can also donate by phone, by calling a dedicated Christian Aid number: 0808 0006 006

People can donate on their smart phones by texting 70040 and then GIVE (the GIVE must be in capitals). They will then automatically donate £5 to Christian Aid. (I asked Christian Aid if there were other numbers for people wanting to donate larger amounts by text, but there aren’t.)
