Christian Aid Week Activities
Christian Aid Week 2013 commences Sunday 12th May, the theme is "Bite Back at Hunger". Today around 870 million people are desperate for food, one in eight people will go to bed hungry tonight - this is a scandal. But if we "Bite Back at Hunger" this Christian Aid Week we can help communities find ways to not only survive but to thrive, with enough food to eat not just today but tomorrow.
Christian Aid Week Collection
The Christian Aid Group and their band of supporters will again be undertaking The Christian Aid Week Collection throughout Bishopton during the week commencing Sunday 12th May. We understand the uncertainty and concern regarding the current economic climate, but would ask that consideration be given to those less fortunate than ourselves, in the developing world.
Bishopton Christian Aid Coffee Morning and Plant Sale
A Coffee Morning and Plant Sale will be held in Bishopton Community Centre from 10am to 12 noon on Saturday 11th May. After selecting your plants, you can enjoy a cake plus a cup of Fairtrade tea or coffee, and find out about World Fairtrade Day which is also held this year on 11th May. Tickets £2 for adults, with children free.
We would ask all budding and experienced gardeners to assist us again, or for the first time, in providing any plants for the sale. In addition, we would be grateful for assistance regarding identifying plants and giving advice to non-gardeners at the Plant Sale.
