Volunteers receive award for years of dedication to charity

A group of Llandudno churches have been awarded a Diamond Award this week for 60 years of faithful fundraising.

Llandudno was one of twenty area in Wales to take part in the first ever Christian Aid Week in May 1957 to raise funds to help refugees following the Second World War.

Today the group of churches raise approximately £10,000 each year towards this humanitarian work.

As Christian Aid marks 60 years of its annual fundraising drive, Christian Aid Week, the charity is celebrating the incredible dedication of its supporters by awarding Diamond Awards across the UK.

Every May, thousands of supporters take the streets – for door-to-door collections, bake sales, sponsored walks, abseils, among many other events – to raise money to support people around the world living in poverty. 

This May during Christian Aid Week they have many events organised including an United Service to open the week in Gloddaeth United Church on Sunday, May 14 at 6pm, three coffee mornings in Gloddaeth United Church on May 17, in St Johns on May 19 and in Holy Trinity on May 20.

Regional Coordinator Anna Jane Evans said: “Without the dedication of our supporters year on year, we wouldn’t be able to do the work we do.”
