Fundraising at St John the Apostle Whetstone

Our Annual Christmas Charity Raffle to benefit the Amasango Career School in Grahamstown, South Africa took place on Sunday 15th November 2009 at the 11th Finchley Cubs Christmas Fair.

A big thank you is due to all who worked so hard to make the outcome of the Raffle so successful this year. A special thank you must go to the members of our Junior Church who sold many of the tickets on the two preceding Sundays.

Fund-raising by Mutley Baptist Church

Jane Bradshaw’s visit to Mutley Baptist Church when she came to England in June, 2003, had a profound effect on many of the people there. My wife and I were motivated to spend our summer holidays in Grahamstown, helping teach the children (and staff) at the school and another member of our congregation has just returned from a three month stay with Jane.

Upon our return, the people at Church were keen to hear of our experiences, and help Jane and the children themselves, so we organised an African evening to raise money for Amasango.
