The local Christian Aid committee is part of Neston and District Churches Together (NDCT), which represents the churches in Burton, Little Neston, Neston, Parkgate and Willaston.

Members organise:

  • sponsored walk in March
  • house-to-house collection during Christian Aid Week in May
  • bag-packing in Sainsbury’s at Christmas and during Christian Aid Week
  • collection at Gordale at Christmas and during Christian Aid Week

An ecumenical service is held in a local church during Christian Aid Week.

For dates this year, please see Event calendar

All the money raised is sent to Christian Aid Head Office: in 2016 we sent almost £12,000, plus donations to the Haiti Hurricane Appeal and the Syrian Refugee Appeal.

Christian Aid’s motto is ‘We believe in life before death’. They work in 50 countries through local organisations to deliver direct, practical benefits, and campaign to challenge the causes of poverty. A detailed description of the aims and work of Christian Aid is here
