Once again we have been challenged by some of our younger church members to
support the WaterAid 'Jars of Change' Lent Appeal. Please use the period of Lent
to collect the loose change in your pockets or purses to fill glass jar. At
Easter please bring the jars of change to church so that they can be added to
our donation. More information about the Lent Appeal and the projects that it
will support can be found on the WaterAid website, please click on the Appeal
