Congratulations to Maureen Rew who, at the end of January, was presented with a Long Service Award from Christian Aid at Interchurch House, their headquarters in London.
Maureen has been organising St Mary Magdalene’s contributions to Christian Aid Week for fifteen years, as part of our church community’s rising to Jesus’ challenge to love our neighbour. This has involved recruiting collectors, organising envelope distribution, counting money and passing this on to Christian Aid. In addition she has made sure that we have been aware of and responded to any calls from the charity to raise funds for global emergencies and crises.
Maureen has decided that it is now time to step down and hand over the running of Christian Aid Week for St Mary Magdalene’s to someone else. Alison and Paul Reeve will be taking over.
Thank you, Maureen, for your dedication and hard work. Thank you also to Keith for his support over the past fifteen years.
