Break Poverty: Make Peace

Around 50 people gathered in Trebeck Hall, Southwell to Stand Up and Speak Out and to conclude a month in which 200 local church members have signed Lift the Lid postcards.

Campaigners heard back from 2 local groups who had been working on development projects in Peru and Uganda, and sang one of the songs from the Poverty Requiem.
A special 'Break Poverty:Make Peace' banner was signed by all present and will now circulate round the churches for more signatures during the coming month.

Meanwhile in Wells, members of the Bath & Wells Diocesan Staff 'Stood Up' in front of the Old Deanery on Cathedral Green.

And on thursday in Harrogate, the Mayor joined Jubilee supporters to appreciate an inspiring talk from David Golding entitled, 'Debt-Progress & Challenge'.

This was followed by a brief presentation of Haiti and some of its people from Rev. Darren McClintock. The Reverend was impressed by the enormous effort put into, and the consistent dedication and determination that there is in the campaign.
