Today is usually market day of course and this week, 10th to 16th May, is Christian Aid week, so there would have been volunteers out and about in town giving the opportunity for people to donate.  Christian Aid work with local partners and communities to fight injustice, respond to humanitarian emergencies, campaign for change, and help people claim the services and rights they are entitled to. As a charity which usually relies heavily on the special fund raising events which are run this week, Christian Aid will be facing financial challenges. Please take the time to look at the appeal on their website ( and consider making a donation in lieu of what you may have donated this week at your local event. Thank you.
