1st Werrington GB group members have joined in with GB Europe's fundraising campaign to transform the lives of young women in East Africa.
GB Europe is hoping to fundraise enough money to buy 1,250 menstrual health packs to transform the lives of 1,250 girls in East Africa with charity Fields of Life throughout 2018.
The members of 1st Werrington held a coffee morning, on 23 June 2018, to raise money for this cause.
Team Leader Marie Degg says 'The amount raised to date is £555.60p. This has exceeded our expectations. We have such a caring, generous church family. I thank God for them all.'
The group's church is also going to raise money for these packs by donating the harvest appeal money later this year.
The I AM GIRL initiative has been launched to give hope to girls in GB's 125th birthday year - and joining in with the campaign is a great way for GB England & Wales' groups to join in with our Give Hope challenge.
6 women from GB England & Wales will be travelling to Uganda next summer with Fields of Life as part of a team of 13 from GB Europe.Read more
