Exhibition will highlight good work of Trinity church

A church congregation has raised £5000 to help mums in Malawi have their babies safely.

On Monday, ahead of the May 10 start of Christian Aid Week, Falkirk’s Trinity Church is hosting an exhibition which tells their stories.

A dance night, medieval banquet and strawberry teas are just some of the activities church members organised to collect cash for the Malawi Mothers project.

Mary Mulligan of Christian Aid Scotland recently visited Malawi and saw first-hand how support from Falkirk had made a difference.

She said: “Falkirk Trinity Church has done an incredible amount of work raising funds which are now being put to good use improving the lives of new mums and babies in Malawi. Their dedicated efforts are giving hope to women in one of the world’s poorest countries and this work would not be possible without their support.

“I hope many people from Falkirk visit the exhibition and see for themselves the real change which has come about as a result of this community choosing to stand side by side with neighbours who are less fortunate that ourselves.

“It features images and powerful quotes from women whose lives have been transformed.”

Jean MacSween of Trinity Church said: “The exhibition is part of our annual Christian Aid book sale and we hope the public will visit to have a look at both.”
