Church Champions Joshua

This year we are delighted to be being supported by the congregation and clergy at St Mary Magdalen church in Tilehurst. From Lent until Candlemas they are donation all the money they raise from their fundraising activities (and more) to Joshua.

Last Sunday, Andy Deaville was invited to the church where he was honoured to be given the usual sermon slot to talk about our work and how the church's support will help the vulnerable communities we work with in Malawi. Andy is pictured above presenting the church with a special thank you to the Revd. Peter Grosse.

Andy received an incredibly warm welcome, including lots of tea and cake (and pasta), and we are thrilled to announce that so far, the churches efforts, including a Pasta Party, Lent Donation's and a brave Heroes Runner in the shape of Peter Mayers (pictured), have raised over £900.

We would like to thank everyone at the church for their support in making all of these events so successful and we look forward to keeping you up to date throughout the year with their fantastic fundraising efforts.
