Hartley Wintney raises money for forests

– A Rocha – The Big Give –

forest-charity-treeHartley Wintney is to raise money for the 100churches Rainforest Project again this 2012 December.

In 2011 St. John’s, Hartley Wintney, Hampshire, became the fourth church to raise money for the Rainforest Fund. They organised an alternative Christmas Card  to raise money for the Rainforest Fund. (They are raising money again in 2012 ready for the Big give 2012    6 – 8 December).

This Christmas Card Tree was made from an old cardboard box and members of the congregation were invited to write their Christmas message on a “bauble” and stick it on the tree instead of buying individual cards.

Money raised was donated on line to A Rocha’s Forests programme including A Rocha Ghana. It was given as part of the “Big Give” where signed-up charities received double the donations between set dates in December. –

See the Arocha International part of the Big Give Website – In 2012 the A Rocha money is directed to Environmental Education – in countries with endangered habitat- so vital in raising awareness of the need and value of protecting habitat.

Hartely Wintney is the fourth church in CEL’s 100 churches project .

Remember we live at a time when

Under threat of extinction:-

  • One quarter of the world’s mammals and
  • One fifth of the plants
