GOOD FRIDAY VIRTUAL PRAYER WALK
Rev Neil and Rev David are taking on a Kiltwalk round Alloway and Doonfoot Parish to raise funds for Christian Aid, a charity which is close to our hearts and which gives generously to some of the poorest, most vulnerable people in the world. Every penny we raise will be topped up by 50% thanks to the generosity of Sir Tom Hunter and The Hunter Foundation. Any donation will be gratefully received by ourselves and given directly to Christian Aid who are commending this initiative. Thank you in anticipation of your kindness and support.
