Christian Aid Week takes place every year, raising more than £8,000 across Bramhall and Woodford through the red envelope donation collection.

As a result of the coronavirus pandemic, the collection – which would have been held during Christian Aid Week from May 10th to 16th – is unable to take place, but you can still help make a difference where it matters most.

Christian Aid Week 2020

The red envelope collection raises £7.5 million nationally and there are concerns that this year, there is a real risk that only a small portion of this amount will be raised.

This is particularly worrying because at a time when we are all being affected by COVID-19, those already living in challenging situations associated with poverty and climate change are being put at additional risk because of the coronavirus.

Christian Aid Week

As Christian Aid cannot physically collect envelopes this year, the Bramhall and Woodford Christian Aid Committee are calling on local residents – who usually give so generously – to consider making a donation in a different way.

Socially distant donations

There are various ways to donate safely during the COVID-19 crisis, with the preferred method being via the ‘donate’ page on the Christian Aid website. Donating in this way means the charity can benefit from Gift Aid – an additional 25% of the donation is contributed by the government.


To donate online, please use the following guidance:

  • Donate online by debit/credit card or PayPal at this link:
  • So that we are able to see how this online way of donating is contributing to our total, please check the box “On behalf of another individual, church or group” on the second page and then enter our reference number “35675” as the organisation name, “Bramhall Methodist Church” as the building name and “SK7 1AL” as the postcode.”

If you would prefer to donate in a different way, there are two alternatives:

  • Bank transfer to ‘Bramhall & Woodford Council of Churches Christian Aid A/C’, Sort Code 20-55-59, Account No 00202606.
  • Cheque payable to Bramhall & Woodford Council of Churches Christian Aid A/C’ and post or deliver by hand to BramhallMethodist Church, 23 Bramhall Lane South, Bramhall, Stockport, SK7 1AL.

The Bramhall and Woodford Christian Aid Committee represents Bramhall Methodist Church, St Michael and All Angels Parish Church, the United Reform Church and Christ Church Woodford, all of which extend their thanks to local residents for their continued support and generous donations.

  • They are amongst the first on ground level to respond to emergencies such as natural disasters and where people are displaced, to bring emergency relief and long-term support.
  • They help people set up their own businesses, create opportunities and adapt to climate change to give people control over their own finances.
  • They help people have a greater say in their society to secure access to healthcare, education and water.
  • They work with people and global organisations to speak out against injustice.

Christian Aid Week 2020

Christian Aid stands with people to build a world where dignity, equality and justice are experienced by everyone. Please give generously this Christian Aid Week and let’s show that while coronavirus impacts all of us, love unites us all.
