Story

Well, I have now completed the Half Marathon – although thanks to foot & mouth affecting Windsor Great Park – I huffed and puffed my way round Wandsworth Common instead.

Now is the time to redeem those pledges as I make one last fundraising push for the sake of the many people in the Holy Land receiving help from Aid to the Church in Need. Facing persecution, poverty and a loss of hope, Christians are leaving in droves, especially from Palestine.

Archbishop Elias Chacour of The Galilee recently told ACN supporters in Westminster Cathedral that emigration is “our biggest enemy”. ACN’s support for a youth event in Fassouta, northern last month (Sept 07) attracted more than 10,000 young people – a real sign of hope! For more information, please see www.acnuk.org

If you feel able to give, donating via Justgiving is simple, fast and totally secure. If you are a taxpayer, an extra 28% in tax will be added to your gift at no cost to you. Thank you for your support!
