PUBLICITY for this year’s Christian Aid Week has focused on the victims of war and conflict that so often fill the television news screens.

In the past week members of local churches have knocked on doors to collect donations to Christian Aid, and many Guardian readers have responded generously. We are not able to call at every house in Crewe and the surrounding villages, so we are grateful that Morrisons allowed us to have a bucket collection at their store in Dunwoody Way on Bank Holiday Monday.
