Northampton Women Offer Help to Calais Aid Initiative

The women of the Northampton area of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints contributed clothing, food and footwear to Calais Action Initiative over a Women’s Conference Weekend. 

Around 350 women and girls aged 8 years and over attended the Conference, bringing with them the much needed donations in response to Northampton Women’s President Traci De Marco’s request.  Traci De Marco commented, " We see this as a great opportunity to come together as daughters in the gospel, realising our motto that "Charity Never Faileth" and feel of the blessings that come from helping our less fortunate brothers and sisters, who right now, really need our help.”

With an e mail sent out to all congregations in the area and a post on the local group’s Facebook page, two days before Women’s Conference,  the donations gratefully received were then taken to the collecting point at the University of Northampton on the Monday – a very fast turnaround.
