Have YOU got any suggestions?

Thanks to your support and involvement the Justice and Peace bank balance is looking rather healthy.
We are now looking for suggestions as to good causes that the parish can donate to.
This money has been raised specifically to assist justice and peace good causes both here in the UK and overseas therefore donations can only be made to causes that promote increased justice and/or peace.
If you have any ideas please contact a member of the Justice and Peace Group or use the contact form on this website. 
We look forward to hearing from you with your ideas.  If you would like more information please visit our Justice and Peace page here...
