Christian Aid Appeal fundraisers - Churches together in Frampton Cotterell & Coalpit Heath

April 27-May 19

Various times

Various places

Cost varies for each event

CHURCHES Together in Frampton Cotterell & Coalpit Heath are planning a series of events for this year’s Christian Aid Appeal.

Money is being raised to improve maternal and child health in Sierra Leone, which is rated as the world’s most dangerous place to give birth.

The charity says 10 women die in childbirth every day and one child in every nine dies before the age of 5.

Donations collected will help build health clinics, provide medical training and improve

hygiene, so that mums and babies can live long and happy lives.

Six events have been announced so far and everyone is welcome to attend.
