FRIENDS OF THE HOLY LAND – A MESSAGE FROM YOUR LOCAL CHAIRMAN
Due to Covid-19, we cannot hold the fund raising events that many of you have supported. Meanwhile, the impact of the virus on Christians in the Holy Land is devastating as so many rely on the income from pilgrimages and tourists. The Charity has launched the FHL Pentecost Challenge to raise funds before Pentecost on 31 May. Three long standing supporters have pledged to match fund the first £100,000, so every £1 you donate will have the impact of £2. Please donate at www.friendsoftheholyland.org.uk/pentecost-challenge and please be generous, recognising what you might have donated in better times from attending our events.
If you have other ideas on how to reach your traditional supporters please share them with us. I will be in touch next week both for your feedback and to ascertain any help we may be able to provide from HQ with any contact details that you may be missing.
Many thanks for your continued support.
