Unveiling of a new vision

TODMORDEN and Hebden Bridge Christian Aid invite you to a multi-media evening to unveil its vision of “Poverty Over”.

The event at St Mary’s Church, Todmorden, on Friday night at 7.30pm will also include a presentation titled “Once and for all”, detailing work being carried out in the poorest countries.

Mark Johnston, Todmorden’s new committee chairman, said: “This is a really exciting start to our fundraising year.

“It’s a chance for anyone who has ever wondered what the red envelope dropping through the door in Christian Aid week is all about. It will show what the world looks like through the eyes of the poorest people, and what each of us can do to help those in poverty out of poverty.”

Last year the local community raised nearly £5,000, which has provided school facilities in South Sudan.
