Once again this year our home church, St Julians Baptist in Newport, took part in Christian Aid week. I’ve been the Christian Aid Rep for quite a few years now and every year we run a series of events for people in the church and in the local community.
This year we ran some old favourites and tried a couple of new things too. As always we had a team quiz, accompanied by tea and cake (pretty much everything is accompanied by tea and cake). Other events included a plant sale, a sponsored walk across the old Severn Bridge and a Handbell recital at a local garden centre.
My favourite event this year was the Scalextric Rally, four fantastic practice circuits and a digital timed track with prizes for the best times.
Christian Aid Week actually lasts about six weeks for us usually by the time we get all our events in and this year we raised over £1200.
I’ve included a few action shots from the Scalextric. Looking forward to next year
