WE wish to extend a big thank you to all those who supported the Swanage Folk Festival Service on Sunday, September 13 at St Mary’s Parish Church.

The church was full to capacity with standing room only and the collection raised just under £2,000 for Christian Aid’s Emergency Appeal for Refugees.

Christian Aid is working with churches and other agencies to support humanitarian efforts in Europe and the Middle East.

Their partners can provide essential humanitarian supplies such as food, fuel for cooking, hygiene and sanitation kits, water containers and cash assistance, as well as psychological support.
