FAITH FUNDS: Kings Langley Christian charity raises more than £10,000 for those in need

The Kings Langley branch of Christian Aid, the global poverty relief charity, raised more than £10,000 throughout 2023.

The group, which unites the village’s churches, collectively raised a total of £11,460.03, primarily through emergency appeals and event fundraisers.

The largest amount of money was donated during Christian Aid Week in March of last year, with appeals posted door-to-door around the area. This one action, organised by volunteers, raised more than £4,000.

Residents also gathered together to support the charity’s emergency appeal in February last year, following the devastating earthquakes in Turkey and Syria. Villagers helped to raise more than £2,000.

Events were held throughout the year, including the village quiz in February, a coffee morning at Christ Baptist Church in May, a fundraising meal at Abbots Tandoori in November, and carol singing with pupils at Nash Mills Primary School in December.

The fundraising meal raised £1,022 for relief workers operating amidst the ongoing conflict in Gaza, with tickets for the event, a raffle and donations all contributing to the cash total.

Members of the group have also been flexing their campaigning muscles by writing numerous letters to Sir Mike Penning, MP for Hemel Hempstead, asking for his attention on a variety of global issues, including the threat posed by climate change.

The next edition of the village quiz will be held at the Services Club on the High Street on Friday, February 9. If you would like to join, email Christian Aid’s secretary at
