Our chosen Charity for the summer (July-August) is the WWF (Worldwide Fund for Nature) Village Festival Youth Committee are raising money to support the WWF as they are keen to protect endangered animals. Two of them were already sponsoring animals through the WWF so they decided this was a really important cause for them. Every year the children decide themselves on a charity to support and then devise a way to raise funds at the Village Festival. You can help them reach their fund-raising target by going to where you will find their fund-raising page and can Gift Aid your donation.  There is more information at the back of the church.
