Christian Aid Week   10th – 16th May 2020

Christian Aid has been one of the main charities supported by St Martin’s for many years and we would like to try to raise a good sum of money again for them this year.

Before we tell you more about the work they are doing and remind you of the ways we’ve raised money in previous years there is some important news to share with you:

St.Martin’s have secured ‘matched funding’ for the first £1,000 of donations made through St. Martin’s in response to this appeal. So for every £1 you give Christian Aid will receive £2. Your donation will really help!

Memories of previous fund raising

Our Big Breakfast always went down well. Served in the Brass Crosby Room, people enjoyed a lovely breakfast together and made donations that were given to Christian Aid.

Perhaps you could have your own big breakfast and make a donation to support Christian Aid’s work?

And for those of a more energetic disposition we took part (and would have done so again this year) in the Circle the City sponsored walk.

Perhaps you could provide sponsorship in lieu of this year’s walk?

The work of Christian Aid

As most will know, Christian Aid focuses on the world’s needy, being involved in programmes addressing famine relief, refugees, climate change and tax justice.

Inevitably Coronavirus has jumped up their priority list, as it has ours. In their words:

The coronavirus outbreak threatens the health of our neighbours near and far. Together we must respond quickly to help the most vulnerable.

Coronavirus has shown us that our futures are bound more tightly together than ever before. 

And now it is spreading across the world’s poorest countries, putting people living in poverty at great risk.  

These people are already facing a lack of water, food and healthcare. Some are homeless. Some are living with underlying health issues such as HIV. 

As coronavirus infection rates speed up, they will feel the impacts of the virus deeply. We must respond now.

Coronavirus impacts all of us. But love unites us all.


We hope you may feel able to support Christian Aid Week this year – all donations help, however large or small.
