Why not sit back and enjoy coffee and home-made cake while your car is hand washed?

Members of Clitheroe Community Church are offering to roll up their sleeves and do all the hard work for you as they raise money for Christian Aid Week.

The King’s Centre, in Millthorne Avenue, Clitheroe, will be open on Saturday, May 17th, between 10am and noon, and cars of all shapes and sizes are welcome.

The Coffee Lounge will be serving hot drinks and home-made cakes, and children’s activities will also be available. Anyone not in need of a car wash is still welcome to go along and enjoy the coffee and cakes!

This year’s Christian Aid Week, Britain’s longest running door-to-door fund-raising week, is asking the British public to support communities in war-ravaged countries to rebuild their lives and live a life free from fear.

Christian Aid Week runs nationally from May 11th to 17th, and donations can be made in the distinctive red gift envelopes, which members from all the local churches will be delivering soon. Alternatively donations can be made online at, by calling 08080 006 006, or by texting ‘GIVE’ to 78866 to give £5.

Christian Aid works with partners in many countries around the world dealing with the challenges of ongoing conflict, or the legacy war leaves behind. Places like the Democratic Republic of Congo, Colombia, Iraq, South Sudan and Syria which are regularly in the news, but also in countries like Angola and Sierra Leone, still re-building many years after the fighting has stopped.
