Christian Aid Week 15–21 May
For many years we have invited the people of Sedgefield to take part in the annual national Christian Aid Week appeal.
Since the pandemic lockdown we have not been able to arrange the usual annual house to house collection. However, donations can be made by visiting the Christian Aid website at www.christianaid.org.uk. Christian Aid seeks to help some of the poorest people in our world. We will display the advance publicity banners and posters outside our Methodist Church.
Thank you for supporting this appeal.
Margaret and David Glass.
Sunday 22 May 2022—The Distinguished
On Sunday 22 May 2022, we are teaming up to ride solo in The Distinguished Gentleman's Ride with fellow men and women across the globe to raise funds and awareness for prostate cancer and men's mental health on behalf of Movember.
Men die on average 6 years earlier than women and for largely preventable reasons. The number of men that are suffering is growing, and we need to do something about that. So, before we press our tweed and polish our boots, we are asking you to join us in raising funds and awareness for these causes by donating what you can for this meaningful cause and to help the men we love, live happier and healthier lives. Please see
www.gentlemansride.com/ fundraiser/IanClifford440924 to donate. Ian Clifford
