Act for Justice - Clothes Sale

Those of us who were at "The Stand" last Saturday, or heard Ben Cooley speak when he came to us earlier this year, will know about the amazing work of Hope for Justice, an organisation committed to rescuing victims of human trafficking in the UK.

At Kerith we have an Act for Justice group, lead by Lianne Allen, which aims to promote the work of Hope for Justice locally. They do this in a number of ways, including praying for Hope for Justice, raising awareness of the issues around human trafficking, lobbying parliament and fundraising (if you want to know more about the group then contact Lianne by sending her an email here).

As part of their fundraising they are going to hold a children's clothes sale in K2 on Saturday 3rd September, from 10am-1pm. If you have any unwanted children's clothes which you could donate for the sale then they would love to have them. There is a blue recycling bin, with Act for Justice written on it, which is outside The Studio - the building on the Kerith Centre car park which isn't the Kerith Centre!

We know as a church that money is one of the keys to growth. That is just as true for Hope for Justice. More money means more investigators, which means more people getting rescued - it's as simple as that. So please support this if you can, either by donating clothes or coming and buying them on the 3rd. Or maybe you just want to give money directly - you can do that here.

Thank you so much.
