Rustington street collection raised £461.33

I am pleased to announce that the street collection for Christian Aid in Rustington on Friday May 19 raised £461.33 thanks to a band of cheerful collectors and the generous support of the public.

This means that, overall, ‘Churches Together in Rustington, with support from St Mary’s in East Preston and Angmering Baptist Church have raised a total to date of £5,875 during Christian Aid Week 2017.

A big thank you to those householders who received us graciously, opened their purses and turned out their pockets recognising that, although often dripping wet from the inclement weather of Christian Aid Week and exhausted from delivering and collecting thousands of envelopes, we were volunteering for an important and worthwhile cause.

Together we have been able to make a real difference to the lives of those who live in poverty.

Thank you once again for your support to collectors in the shopping area and through the envelopes collected at your doors.
