I recently sponsored a Christian Aid event in the Scottish Parliament in advance of Christian Aid Week, which ran from the 12th to the 18th May 2019.
The event highlighted Christian Aid’s work on tackling extreme poverty, climate change, maternal health, and tax justice. The week brings together partners and supporters to raise funds to support its global effort to fight poverty and find practical ways to highlight issues around it.
This year the annual fundraising effort was very successful, raising over £8 million. Next year, there will be an opportunity for everyone in the Mid Scotland and Fife Region to get involved, attend organised events or make a financial contribution and I would encourage anyone who is interested to go to the website at www.christianaid.org.uk where you can find a wealth of information and resources.
