"How can I help?"

If you would like to contribute to this fund for African students, please make a cheque payable to "St Margaret's, Lerwick" and mail it to:

Africa Fund, 87 St Olaf Street, LERWICK, Shetland, ZE1 0ES.

Even more useful would be a monthly standing order through the bank. If we had ten people contributing ten or twenty pounds a month we could guarantee enough funds to see these students through the duration of their course.

Fr Ambrose will be happy to supply the bank details for a Direct Debit order. He can be reached through the parish e-mail: [javascript protected email address]

You can also make a cash donation using the wall-safe at the back of the church.
