Disasters Emergency Committee Appeal
When the Disasters Emergency Committee (DEC), which represents 14 leading aid agencies, announces an emergency appeal, Trinity's policy is to hold a retiring collection for two Sundays - enabling us to show we care.
Cyclone Idai struck a large area in East Africa on 14 March killing over 480 people and leaving many thousands of people homeless, without fresh water or food and at risk from disease such as cholera. DEC member charities are delivering emergency shelter kits, food such as pulses and maize flour, water purification tablets and urgent health assistance.
The DEC announced an appeal so at Trinity we held collections on Sundays 24 and 31 March.
The amount donated was £793, to which Gift Aid will add a further £167.50, thus making almost £1,000. Thank you to all contributors.
