St Mary Redcliffe Lent Appeal 2018
Each year St Mary Redcliffe chooses a charity to support for its Lent Appeal. The Lent Appeal is an opportunity not simply to raise funds but also to build new relationships and raise the profile of a charity not just among our members but across Bristol.
This year we supported Temwa and raised over £7,500 for communities in extremely deprived remote rural areas of Malawi, to support sustainable development.
