CHRISTIAN AID WEEK 2015: 70th ANNIVERSARY

Sunday 10th May – 17th May 2015 marks one of the biggest fundraising moments of the year, Christian Aid Week. Five hundred fundraisers will be pounding the pavements of London to help people in poverty in Ethiopia as part of Christian Aid’s annual Circle the City event.  This year the charity is also commemorating their 70th anniversary.


The walk, organised by Christian Aid as part of the Britain’s longest running door-to-door fundraising week, is a family event and will begin at midday at St Mary-le-Bow, Cheapside on Sunday 17 May.

As well as taking in famous sites such as the Tower of London and St Paul’s Cathedral, walkers will also be able to visit All Hallows by the Tower one of the oldest churches in the City of London.

The afternoon event will also include live music at many of the churches, historical tours, prize giveaways, alongside pop-up exhibitions highlighting Christian Aid’s work, and face painting for the kids.

Started in 1997, Circle the City aims to unite communities in the fight against poverty. To find out more about Circle the City, or to take part in the sponsored event visit ctc2015.eventbrite.co.uk
