Over the season of Remembrance, as the nation once again turns its attention towards the military community, we’re looking to mobilise SASRA supporters between 1 and 11 November to help us raise awareness and funds.
To double the number of Scripture Readers, we will need to double the number of SASRA supporters. We have been asking passionate supporters of our work if they could share that passion with a friend or family member who may not have heard of us before, or do a fundraiser for SASRA. Last year, SASRA Development Officer Gareth Bartlett raised over £450 by reading eleven chapters of the Bible each day, for eleven days!
This year, SASRA supporter Alice Longwe was inspired to do a bake sale alongside the local Art Club’s Christmas Fayre. The preparation started a month prior to the sale, as Alice and her friend Katrina sought donations.

On the day, they had a lovely display of home baking, jams and honey, which quickly vanished into shopper’s bags. As well as edibles, Alice had lavender bags, knitted lambs and SASRA books and stationery.
