The Christian Aid logoCHRISTIAN AID WEEK 2017

14 - 20 MAY

Aims and Vision

Christian Aid is a charitable organisation that insists the world can and must be swiftly changed to where everyone, regardless of faith or nationality, can live a full life, free from poverty.

 

 

Mandate

Christian Aid is part of an agency of our churches in Britain and Ireland who are mandated to work on relief, development and advocacy for poverty eradication. Christian Aid’s work is founded on Christian Faith.

 

Currie Kirk’s Involvement

Christian Aid’s main fund raising event is Christian Aid Week in May. There are many ways to raise funds but our campaign centres round a house to house collection over the whole of Currie Parish. We divide Currie into 75 districts and, to ensure complete coverage, we need a volunteer to collect in each district. During May 2016, we collected £5,548.  If you feel in the future, you could spare a couple of hours during the relevant week, we would love to hear from you.  All that is involved it putting an envelope through the door of each house in a street and then returning later in the week to ask if the occupant is interested in contributing. Since 2010, we have raised more than £45,000 for Christian Aid, a notable figure, which we could not have achieved without a dedicated team, currently: Ishbel Massie (Co-ordinator) and Eunice Stewart (Treasurer).

In addition to the Christian Aid Week collection we also take your old mobile telephones, old laptops, DVD and other electronic devices.

If you have any questions or would like further information please contact Ishbel Massie on 0131 449 4693 or Eunice Stewart on 0131 449 6832. Alternatively, have a look at the Christian Aid website (this link will open in a new window).
