Earth Hour:

Saturday 28th March at 8.30 pm.

Just because we are staying at home does not mean we cannot participate in Earth Hour. There are loads of things we can do at home to make earth hour a success and make a significant difference across our planet! Here are some suggestions you can maybe find more!

  1. Switch off all your lights for an hour! This is the DNA action for Earth Hour!
  2. Have dinner in the dark with some candles instead of electric lights!
  3. Have a night of board games jigsaws of read a book by candle light.
  4. Have a themed movie night watching something you’ve always wanted to watch but not managed to yet or watch “Our Planet” and find out a bit more about our home.
  5. Try some night photography! See if you can get some really good shots in the evening light.
  6. Do some research on what you can do to live more sustainably!

For the children :

  1. Create your own shadow puppet theatre by making the shapes of your characters, get a sheet and bring your puppets to life behind the sheet with a torch!
  2. Have an indoor scavenger hunt, lights out and hide sweets or something they like around the house for them to hunt and find!

If you go onto the website 60+ Earth Hour 2021 you will get lots of information and ideas there to help our planet!

Christian Aid week this year will be from May 10th to 16th . The main theme will be tackling Climate Change. Last year, despite the coronavirus, a total of £4m was raised nationally. Thanks to all of you who gave directly towards this total. Our Just Giving page, sponsoring Louise and Vivien’s marathon walks, was one of 643 that contributed. Just to remind you, their great effort raised £1,625, boosted to £1,900 with gift aid. This year it is uncertain as to whether we will be able to do any of our traditional types of fundraising, even in modified form. Advice from headquarters is as changeable as is the virus. I am keen to try to organise local events if possible and am exploring the ideas of a quiz, probably on Zoom, a walk and some type of donation envelope. Other ideas would be most welcome. If this is not possible then there are centrally organised events for which I will forward details later.

Please contact me if you any fundraising ideas.
