Hebden Royd Christian Aid group would like to thank the people of Hebden Bridge and Mytholmroyd for their generosity during Christian Aid Week and with other events.

The annual house-to-house collection raised over £1,800 and a flag day raised a further £115, despite poor weather.

The group are also raising cash to promote women’s health and education in El Salvador and Honduras. Donations and pledges have raised over £3,000 since February towards the total of £5,000.

This will be boosted by EU top-up funding once the target is reached, providing £20,000 to the project on the ground.

Chairman David Powell said: “This is an amazing response. We have a range of other events planned to boost our total and reach out to the most vulnerable people across the world.”
