Update from John Phillips

Thank you to everyone who collected house to house, or at the   Co-op supermarket this year!  We raised £667-23 from the village.

Also, a good response was recorded from the Matlock area as a whole: altogether, the area covered by Churches Together in   Matlock raised £11, 870. These are great achievements and worthy of the 70th anniversary of the setting up of Christian Aid, so well done everybody!

Next year we will need one new collector to do the area of “Artists’ Corner” which is just inside our parish boundary. This is because a former member of our church has been collecting there for many years but has decided that she would prefer to collect in Matlock town, where she lives. So, please will members give some thought to the idea of joining our regular volunteer collector team next time? Thank you.
