Lancashire’s Bishop, Rt Rev Julian Henderson, has launched his Harvest Appeal, which this year is supporting communities in Angola and Myanmar.
The appeal has raised tens of thousands of pounds in recent years and Bishop Julian is calling on Lancashire residents to give generously once more.
Bishop Julian said: “While it is one thing to look after needy neighbours who are close at hand, it is all too easy to overlook the needs of neighbours who are at least as needy but who live far away. This is why I am pleased that the proceeds of the Harvest Appeal for 2014 are to improve things appreciably for people in Angola and Myanmar who are having to scratch along from day to day – often with next to nothing – simply in order to survive.”
