Money to help those in the Philippines was raised at the 83rd birthday party of a member of Boston and District Christian Aid. Brian Newton, group co-ordinator, celebrated his birthday on Saturday, November 30, at Centenary Methodist Church and asked guests for money towards the appeal instead of gifts. Together they managed to raise £1,816.
