Aboud Generator Appeal Update
Following our appeal for donations to help provide a new generator for our twin village of Aboud in the Holy Land, may I thank you for your generosity. We already had £6000 from standing order donations and with your contributions we now have £7498.88 towards our target of £9050. I have spoken to Fr Simon (the parish priest in Aboud) and he is extremely grateful for all we are trying to do to help them. There is still an opportunity to contribute to this very worthwhile cause. Please make your donation, big or small, by giving it to Fr Karol, Elizabeth Barker or by handing it in to the parish office. If you are a UK tax payer then please provide your name and address, or e mail address, so that we can send you a Gift Aid Form and further benefit from your donation.
