From the church year beginning September 2015, presently on record, there are 24 JMA Collectors (5 fewer Collectors from the previous year – these five children no longer attend our church). We lost 5 Collectors and gained two new Collectors.
Members of the church family, friends, and families of the Collectors continue to be Sponsors. They give generously and regularly small of money to the Collectors. The Collectors are encouraged to take their JMA boxes with their record book to collect a donation of money from their Sponsors each month.
Last year was a great year for the Children; their photograph which was taken during the special award service in October 2014 was published in the summer 2015 “RAINBOW”. The Collectors receive the Rainbow magazine 4 times each year. They are a good learning tool for the children.
From September 2014 to August 2015,, the sum of donation collected amounted to £1053.14. This includes the sum raised by Celia and Lyneth by hosting 2 Coffee Stop mornings. Celia and I enjoy helping raise money towards the JMA fund. We look forward to the morning events but we could not carry on without supportive families, friends and Sponsors. October 2015, JMA Collectors received their thank you badges and medals during their special presentation award service which was led by Rev Emma.
Thanks you Sponsors for all that you have done. Please continue to support the children to continue to learn, pray and raise funds towards helping others.
