Christian Aid Week in Scotland

Christian Aid Week 2020 was a week like no other. Coronavirus locked down the country and suspended our plans for a celebration full of Bridge Walks, book fairs and coffee mornings.

We feared for our global neighbours.

But while coronavirus impacts us all, love unites us all. Our supporters reached out to neighbours near and far without even leaving the house.

Thank you!

You flooded our social media with pictures of helping hands and jars of love. We saw you walking and jogging and climbing. We loved your videos! We listened in as you spoke to your congregations, held live haircuts and online quizzes.

Each effort lifted our spirits. And all your gifts will help families around the world to overcome poverty and injustice, wherever the need is greatest.
