My story

hello, Christian Aid plant sales have been running in St. Neots now for nearly 20 years and thousands of £s have been made for Christian Aid. The pandemic led to a smaller but longer lasting sale and it’s starting this weekend in West Street St. Neots outside my house and continuing until there are no plants left to sell. Please come along if you can. You can also donate established disease free plants to sell if you wish. Prices are not high.

I'm also walking the 300,000 steps in May so sponsorship for that can also be received. I’ve borrowed a dog to help me do it!!


Here is how some of the money will be spent:

No mum should have the heart-breaking choice of which child to educate and which one will miss out on their dreams. 

No hardworking young person should be forced to give up on education, locking them into poverty.

We dream of a better world. We want every child to be able to have the education they need to break free of poverty. We imagine a future where crops are not flattened by cyclones and washed away by floods.

Together, we can help people secure a better future for their families, giving them the chance to fulfill their potential.

With your help, we can make dreams come true around the world. We won’t stop until everyone can live a full life, free from poverty.

How your money helps

Poverty pushed Aline to the brink. She was abused, homeless and hungry. But Aline pushed back harder. With Christian Aid funded small business training, she achieved what had seemed impossible, a vital income for her and her children.

Fundraising this Christian Aid Week will ensure more people in Burundi get the skills and knowledge they need to push back against the inhumanity of poverty.
