Although May seems along way ahead it will be soon here. Every year Hardington Vale has supported Christian Aid Week with house to house collections. This year it is
10-16th May. This charity runs a wide number of projects improving the lives of the poorest and most vulnerable people around the globe, and Christian Aid Week is the single biggest act of Christian witness in Britain and Ireland. To be effective it requires volunteers to deliver envelopes to their neighbours and then collect them later in the week. We need more names of people willing to do this in most villages. If you could do your street, or part of a smaller village, please let Paul Shepherd know, email@example.com or leave your details with the Parish Office and Sharman will pass them on.
