Loyal support

On behalf of the Christian Aid committee may I say a very big thank-you to all the churches in the Amble area for their loyal support during Christian Aid week.

Special thanks are also due to the dedicated army of street collectors.

Once again the communities of Amble, Hauxley, Chevington and North Broomhill have shown their kindness and generosity.

Grateful thanks to Carol Gregor, our secretary and co-ordinator, also to Sue Poyer, our new treasurer, for their dedication during Christian Aid week.

The total sum raised for Christian Aid 2013 in this area was the fantastic result of £3,156.26.

May I express my gratitude to all who made this possible.

Betty Gray,

Chairman, Amble and District Christian Aid Committee
