Vicar to lose his hair for a good cause

On Saturday 27th November at Midday Rev Stephen Gardner, the Vicar of All Saints Church, Woodlands and Highfields, will be losing some hair to raise money for a good cause.

His wife Jacquie is going to Ethiopia in March 2011 on a trip organised by the aid agency Tearfund and the New Wine network of Churches. The trip will be focussed on supporting local Churches in Ethiopia with their work with the poorest parts of Ethiopian society, furthering the development work of Tearfund in the region and learning lessons from the Ethiopian Church to bring back to the UK as the Church nationwide looks to serve the poorest members of our society.

Rev Stephen Gardner will be having his legs waxed to raise money to support the costs of the trip and in order to be even handed he is also having his chest waxed to raise money for All Saints Church. The waxing will take place at midday at the All Saints Community Centre Christmas Fayre which opens from 11am to 2pm. Despite requests from various people to participate the waxing will be done by an expert – Laura from The Beauty Spot on the Great North Road in Woodlands.

If you would like to sponsor Stephen then donations can be made either at the Christmas Fayre or by using Paypal. This is a very secure method for sending payment over the internet. PAyment should be sent via Paypal to "stephen@gardnerfamily.co.uk" stating whether the sponsorship is towards the Tearfund appeal (Legs) or All Saints Church (Chest). If no preference is expressed then it will be assumed that the donation is to be equally split.
