Christian Aid supporters in Inverurie will celebrate the charity’s 70th birthday at an event in the Acorn Centre, Inverurie West Parish Church, on Saturday, October 3, from 10am-2.45pm.
The theme is ‘Many Mountains to Climb’. Both existing supporters and those who would like to learn more about what CA does are welcome.
Rev Ian Groves, West Church minister, said: “One of the founders was Rev Douglas Lister, an army chaplain who witnessed the terrible suffering of survivors in Germany. Later he became the Parish Minister at St Andrews, Inverurie, so we have a particularly strong local link going back 70 years.”
The Inverurie celebrations will include a live video link to a larger national event in Edinburgh,
