YEMEN CRISIS APPEAL – DISASTERS EMERGENCY COMMITTEE.

“More than 7 million people in Yemen do not know where their next meal will come from and children are dying from malnutrition.”

So reads the headline of the DEC Yemen Crisis Appeal, further details of which can be found at www.dec.org.uk/appeal/yemen-crisis-appeal

The Standing Committee of the PCC decided on Tuesday 13 December 2016 to donate £500 to this appeal from parish funds. Parishioners wishing to add to this sum can either do so directly, or via the parish. If you wish to donate via the parish, please use one of our yellow envelopes, mark it “Syria” and either put it in the collection or hand it to a church officer. Only put your details on the envelope if you are able to Gift Aid your donation. Many thanks
