Fundraising During Lockdown

Christian aid week

This year’s Christian Aid Week will undoubtedly be a different experience, but we know you will do all you can to make it the same life-changing and joyous week Christian Aid has run since 1957. Now, more than ever, our gifts, prayers and action are desperately needed as our partners strive to continue their work with poor communities worldwide, as well as working hard to reduce the impact of covid-19 on the communities they work with. The world’s poorest countries have the weakest health systems, and many of the most vulnerable people are now being exposed to this deadly virus. They’ll struggle to get the healthcare they need, and with the added cost of not earning a living while in lockdown or quarantine. Our partners are already embedded in these communities working on your behalf to limit the impact of covid-19. You can find out more about what we are doing on our Coronavirus Appeal page.  

Please feel free to join Christian Aid in any of our Christian Aid week online events:

We are also happy to receive cash and cheques donations through the vicarage door – please make cheques payable to ‘Bodicote PCC’ and we will raise a cheque to Christian Aid to cover them.

We would appreciate all physical donations in by 31st May

Your fundraising efforts will help poor communities worldwide to lift themselves out of poverty.  Love never fails. Coronavirus impacts all of us. But love unites us all.  

1000 Miles for May with Paul

Our church treasurer, Paul has begun his own fundraiser for the church during lockdown.

His goal is to cycle 1000 miles in the month of may.

So far he has raised over £300, and is now roughly halfway, having hit 500 miles a few days ago

Only 500 more to go 🙂
