This appeal was initiated by the Diocese of Derby in support of Christian Aid's work.
All donations will support Christian Aid's response to the coronavirus pandemic in affected communities around the world. Yet, it would be great to have the support of all churches across Derbyshire, so please do promote it as widely as possible to your contacts.

The Appeal in more detail…
Here in Derbyshire, as more of our family, friends, and neighbours receive their vaccine, we are both joyful and relieved. But we are aware that many communities around the world are suffering and don't have access to vaccines. And many of them lack the basics they need to protect themselves like clean water for handwashing.
As you or a family member is protected, please give to help protect those who don't have access to vaccines.
The Right Reverend Libby Lane, Bishop of Derby says:
“The vaccine brings with it hope for families and communities across the Diocese of Derby, the UK and around the world, and there will be many of us who will want to express our gratitude by helping others.
“Giving thanks and giving a donation to help those who do not have the benefits that we have, and for whom hope may seem all too distant, is a wonderful way of reaching out to others and to express a wish to see all God’s people living safely. I hope that people will give generously to the work of Christian Aid.
Coronavirus has shown us that our futures are bound more tightly together than ever before. And it has spread through the world’s poorest communities, putting people living in poverty at great risk.
Coronavirus impacts all of us. But love unites us all.
