A huge big THANK YOU Christian Aid Collection Bloxham Benefice. Thank you very much to everyone in Bloxham who donated to this year’s Christian Aid Week collection. Your combined generosity enabled us to bank £2,653.85 from Bloxham village for the Christian Aid charity. Milcombe and tiouth Newington are part of the Bloxham Benefice and with their collections added to Bloxham, the Benefice raised £3,057.41 in total.

A team of over 50 committed volunteers helped to deliver nearly 1,600 envelopes to over 80 streets in Bloxham, Milcombe and South Newington. Approximately 600 envelopes were collected.

I would also like to say a special thank you to those villagers who were not available when their envelope was being collected and therefore made the effort to hand in their donations to a local collector in the days following the official collection week. Every filled envelope makes a difference to the total. Thank you. And finally- because nearly 50% of the collection was kindly gia-aided, Christian Aid will be able to add approximately £360 to this total. With very many thanks Jan Price (St Mary’s Christian Aid Week Co-ordinator)
