Walks, Sales and Quizzes for Christian Aid Week

Tuesday May 11 2021

 

The Head of Christian Aid Scotland has said that the Covid-19 pandemic has shown us how connected we are, but also what can be achieved by working together and thinking of others.

In a reflection released for Christian Aid Week, which began yesterday (Monday), Sally Foster Fulton said that ‘too often we forget how much we belong to each other’.

She added: “We are all in this together. Covid has shown us that. It has also shown us what’s possible when we put each other first.”

While Covid-19 restrictions will again limit fundraising activities for this year’s Christian Aid Week, supporters up and down the country are holding what events they can to support the charity. Among them are Andrew Morris, who is walking 55 miles of the Fife Pilgrim Way this week; and two 80-year-olds, Jim and Stewart from East Kilbride, who are walking 80 times around Heritage Loch.

The Moderator of the General Assembly of the Church of Scotland, the Rt Rev Dr Martin Fair, will again host a quiz in support of Christian Aid, on his Facebook page on Saturday May 15 from 7pm.

And a slimmed-down version of the annual sale at St Andrew’s and St George’s Church, Edinburgh, will start on the same Saturday and run until Tuesday May 18, at 10am-4pm each day (except Sunday). The focus of the sale will be on paperbacks (mostly crime), jigsaws, toys and games.

You can also get involved in Christian Aid’s campaigning by signing the Climate Justice Petition, calling for increased financial support and debt cancellation for the world’s poorest countries, investment in a green recovery and stopping expansion of fossil fuel energy. Supporters are also encouraged to send a postcard of where they live to Boris Johnson, calling on him to use next month’s G7 summit to help poorer countries tackle the climate crisis.
