fighting global poverty
Christian Aid is a Christian Organisation that insists the world can and must be changed to one where everyone can live a full and happy life, free from poverty. They work globally for profound change that eradicates the causes of poverty, striving to achieve equality, dignity and freedom for all, regardless of faith or nationality. They are part of a wider movement for social justice. They provide urgent, practical and effective assistance where need is great, tackling the effects of poverty as well as its root causes.
Each year our fund raising activities for Christian Aid at St. Andrew's focus during and around Christian Aid Week, which is usually held in the middle of May. These events take the form of a quiz, collections outside garden centres, potential cake sales and other collections.
