Holiday Club Challenge – ’food for Africa’
The Holiday Club Challenge is to see if you can raise some money for food for families in East Africa on your own and with your family. Save all the money in a jar and see how much you have raised by the time you go back to school.
Every little will help much more than you can imagine. Read more by clicking on the link above.
Following on from our holiday club theme of loving our neighbour and finding out that meant everyone in the world is our neighbour, we now have a follow-on Holiday club challenge – the practical part of the teaching. This Challenge is to raise some money for food for a group of families in E Africa struggling because of the drought. Pastor Daniel Gitau (who Rev Jeremy knows) has been feeding about 170 people through his church for the last 8 weeks,.... it costs £600 to feed that number of people for 3 weeks.
Children could offer to help with some household jobs like washing up, tidying up even washing the car in return for a (agreed) donation to the jar
Ask family members/family friends to sponsor a family walk of 3- 5 miles (age dependent) or bike ride,
Giving up an ice cream or sweets and putting the money in a jar
Perhaps finding something a parent could sell on ebay, or?
When you have finished the challenge, please pay in the money to St Lukes and make sure it is marked for ‘Holiday Club Challenge’
Every little will help much more than you can imagine.
