Poor Parishes Fund / Easyfundraising.org.uk

Each year we have a second collection  around this time of year for the Poor Parishes of the diocese who have difficulty paying their bills.  However, did you know you can also raise money for the Poor Parishes Fund without costing yourself anything.  If you purchase items via the internet you can log onto easyfundraising.org.uk, register that you want to support Poor Parishes in the Archdiocese of Birmingham then use the links to all the regular web based sales sites (Amazon, Ebay, Argos etc) and anything you buy also raises money for your chosen cause at NO EXTRA COST to you.  Simple!  See the leaflets at the back of Church for more information.
