Monkwearmouth Members of Monkwearmouth Parish dug deep at short notice to raise £1,050.53 on behalf of Christian Aid last month. During a busy Christian Aid week, members of the congregations pulled together to stage such events as cake selling & wine tasting at Bede’s Bakehouse, soup being sold from people’s houses & a Spring Fair in the grounds of St. Andrew’s. Not to be outdone, Team Rector Dick Bradshaw weighed in to the action by Sumo Wrestling Assistant Curate Paul Child & taking part in a ‘Fastest Lap Challenge,’ driving a Ferrari around Croft against the clock. Dick said “This is a fantastic achievement, considering everything was pulled together at such short notice. It gives us a great platform to build on for next year.” Jean Rutter, Christian Aid co-ordinator for the Parish, added “The generosity of the congregations of the three churches has been truly wonderful.”
