Christian Aid Week


If you’re feeling fit – or want to get fitter – you can help raise funds for Christian Aid Week (10-16 May) by taking their 300,000 Steps in May challenge. This works out at an average of just under 10,000 steps per day for May as a whole.

Get fit, have fun and recruit sponsors to help support Christian Aid’s vital work in many of the world’s poorest communities. Quite a few of them have been disadvantaged even further by COVID-19.

You can sign up for the challenge at, where you will also find a guide to collecting your sponsorship online through a Just Giving page.

There will be more information soon on other, less energetic ways to support Christian Aid Week. If you want to know more, please contact Simon Best (
