Appeal to help Christian Aid in South Norfolk 

The Attleborough Christian Aid Group is seeking volunteer collectors to hold buckets or collecting tins in South Norfolk town on Thursday May 19 and Saturday May 21 during Christian Aid Week. This year the focus is on families facing devastating floods in Bangladesh.

Christian Aid Norfolk co-ordinator, Julian Bryant, said: “Picture a young mother of four. Her husband has left.  She has no land. No assets.  No savings. And the only work she can get is backbreaking manual labour for as little as 74p a day.  Her home has been flooded several times, and last August it flooded again. This is Morsheda. She’s our neighbour, and she desperately needs our help. She fears the river and calls it ‘the angel of death.’
 
“Could you help by sparing an hour or so? People will join other volunteers and receive ID, a tabard to wear and either a bucket or a collecting tin.” 
 
If you could spend an hour or two bringing help and hope to people living in poverty around the world then please email jbryant@christian-aid.org  or call 01603 620051. The Attleborough volunteers will give you a big welcome and full information. 
 
Every year volunteers from many different churches across Norfolk make a big difference through Christian Aid in all sorts of ways. Last year Norfolk’s donations increased by 13% during Christian Aid Week.
 
Thank you for all the help you can give.

Do you appreciate our service and stories?

The Network Norwich & Norfolk website has been published for over 13 years now and we have an established team of professional journalists covering the activities, organisations and churches which make up the county’s Christian community. Our whole purpose is to support that community by daily providing accurate, unbiased stories and features.

To pay for that service, we rely on our partner organisations, advertisers and readers to, in turn, support us financially. We want to keep the website free for everyone to access and continue to be able to pay for writers to produce the content you can enjoy every day.

We would like to ask you to consider supporting our work and suggest you might want to make a small regular donation of just £1 a week and become one of our 100 Friends, or a larger one-off or annual amount.

Because we are part of a registered charity we can reclaim Gift Aid on your donations if you are a tax-payer.
