Churches in Withycombe Raleigh have boosted funds raised to help preserve an Indian reservation in the USA
Withycombe Raleigh’s churches have raised more than £2,000 to help preserve an Indian reservation in the USA.
The Wambli Ska Win Vision is a project protecting the Lakota nation of the Pine Ridge reservation, in South Dakota, USA.
With the total raised standing at £2,807, the parish is aiming to raise a further £900 to reach its target of £3,800.
A recent curry night ended with a donation of £230 for the cause, while some £520 was raised after The Reverend Stephen Hoyle, pictured here, was sponsored to work at Mangos coffee shop, in Exmouth.
A further £50 was raised from a soup lunch.
The Right Reverend Michael Langrish, the Bishop of Exeter, has agreed to become patron of Wambli Ska Win Vision UK.
● An illustrated talk Hope on the Rez, highlighting the cause, will be held at 7pm on Friday, December 2, in St John the Evangelist church hall. There will also be the sale of craftwork. All are welcome.
