Christian Aid

Our Normanton on Soar fund-raising Afternoon Tea at the Village Hall has had to be cancelled – just at a time when Christian Aid needs to support poorer countries worldwide who are battling Coronavirus, providing basic things such as soap, clean water and medical supplies.

Therefore, as Government advice allows us one daily exercise, Normanton’s fund-raising event this year will be a plant sale outside two houses in Main Street – Iain & Beth Cumming (Number 7) and Barry & Gill Hilsdon (opposite the school).

Please donate any plants you can by leaving outside the gates of these houses. And to purchase any plants please leave a donation in the collection box. Do remember to stay at least two metres from anyone else that isn’t from your household.

Also, each year, a team of volunteers distribute donation envelopes to houses in the village. As we can’t do that this year, Jenny Drury in Sutton Bonington, has set up a Just Giving page for our two villages, to enable online donations. If you can help this very worthwhile cause, please click on:

Thank you so much.
