Palm Sunday Charity collection appeal.
Palm Sunday is traditionally one of the Sundays where we match the collection from Church funds and donate the proceeds to charity. As we will not be in Church on Sunday, we have agreed that any amounts donated via TWINT on Sunday or Monday, or in our bank account on Monday will be matched by the Church and paid to the Bishop’s Lent Appeal. Please refer to our Payments page for details on how to make payments to the Church.
Many thanks for all of your generosity.
