Charity Checkout: a new secure online giving platform

We now have a new donate button on the site which links to Charity Checkout, who specialise in helping Charities like AREP handle donations in a convenient way.

If you are an existing regular giver, either via standing order or direct debit, there is no need to change anything.

But if you’ve been meaning to start donating, or to change an existing regular donation, please try the Charity Checkout option.

 

Publicity about AREP trip to Uganda

The St Helens Star publicised the 2015 AREP trip to Uganda.  Well done to Erin and friends and your Head of Year for enthusing students in Year 8 at Rainford High.

As a result of this article, Wish FM called and sent a reporter round.

Schools can play a huge part in raising awareness for charities working locally and in other countries.  If anyone would like our more detailed pack of information about any of the sponsored children, or what we’re hoping to achieve during the trip, please get in touch.

Sponsored walk around Anglesey part 2

Red line shows the walk!

This 60-mile sponsored walk (Puffin Island to Holyhead) raised funds for school fees. Part 1 was a similar distance along the Northern Coast of Anglesey from Holyhead to Puffin Island (the blue line).

The Southern (red) route completed a circuit of the island.

Each child we sponsor is known to us personally from our visits to Africa. Most of them have lost a parent or a sibling due to civil war.

The walk was completed and £2.2k was raised. Fantastic! Thanks to one and all.
