Church leader leads the way for the poor

A family celebration focuses on raising support:
George Carratt, a Scottish church leader has raised over £400 to support the work of Mission International during his 50th birthday party. George, his wife Karen and the church they lead have been strong supporters of Mission International for some time and when they came up with the idea of a birthday fundraiser we were of course delighted.George informed his guests on the party invite and then made an announcement on the evening to ask that the folks might support Mission International rather than give expensive gifts to him on his birthday. This selfless option has made it possible for Mission International to bring much needed support to the poor in the developing world. A huge thank you to everyone who contributed.

George and his wife Karen enjoy some Scottish country dancing at the party.

Some of the dances were particularly complicated but the dancers were well able to cope with this since in Scotland school children are taught traditional dancing.
George and his mother reminisce about the 50 years that have passed. How could such a young lady have a 50 year old son?

Bag Packing raises funds:

A great fundraising effort at Somerfield:
There are many wonderful ways to raise funds to support the poor in the developing world. A team of Ambassadors for the Poor have now begun another new and fun way of raising funds. Bag packing at their local supermarket has, with the support of the many generous shoppers, helped this group to raise funds for their trip to Burundi in 2010.


To get going with an Ambassadors for the Poor group in your local area, or to find out about a place on a Mission team please get in touch with us on mail@mission-international.org A teams application form is available if you click here.
