Charity springs into action

SPRING is in the air as an annual charity event returns.

Morpeth Churches Together Christian Aid Group will host its Spring Evening next week.

The event, which takes the form of an information evening with food, will focus on Zimbabwe.

The meal will embrace the culture of the country and a speaker will talk about how Christian Aid is helping its people.

Such events have taken place in Morpeth for around ten years, each time putting a different country in the spotlight. Those attending learn more about people’s quality of life and how a small amount of support can transform their lives.

Last year a total of £9,350 was raised through Christian Aid Week and associated fund-raising activities in Morpeth.

The Spring Evening takes place in Morpeth Methodist Church Hall in Howard Terrace on Saturday, February 23, at 7pm. Tickets cost £5 and are available from Gerry Harber on 01670 517829.
