Dear Colleagues, Sisters and Brothers in Christ,
Schools Supporting Schools Appeal
I hope this email finds you and your families well as you work on the further extension of the opening of schools across the diocese.
During these challenging times, people in our link diocese of Lahore are struggling in many ways. Next week, the Lahore Link Group led by the Rt Revd Mark Ashcroft, Bishop of Bolton will launch a Manchester Diocese generated fundraising appeal highlighting the difficulties faced by our brothers and sisters in Pakistan. The Board of Education also wishes to play its part and I am pleased to support this Schools Supporting Schools Appeal.
Whilst fully appreciating the financial difficulties many are currently facing in the UK, I realise this appeal will not be appropriate in many local contexts, however I have been encouraged to provide school communities with this information should people individually be in a position to support in any way.
Thank you for all you continue to be and to do, for and with our school communities,
Rt Revd Mark Davies
Bishop of Middleton
