Canoeing for Christian Aid

In July, Christian Aid organised a canoe trip down the River Stour.

Ten adults, including Revd John Boardman, and Simon Snell, the new Regional Coordinator for Suffolk with his ten-year-old son, arrived safely in Bures after paddling from Sudbury on a mainly fine day.

Sponsors contributed the magnificent sum of £1,433.

With Gift Aid and quadruple matched funding from the European Union, the total is expected to exceed £6,000.

The event supports projects in the Middle East helping people disabled by violence.
