Two former soap actresses are fronting this year’s Christian Aid Week appeal. Good friends Suranne Jones and Sally Lindsay, who have both starred in Coronation Street, went to the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) to see the charity’s work for themselves. Christian Aid Week (10-16 May) has been running longer than any other fundraising week, and every year thousands of volunteers organise fundraising events or do door-to-door collections. The UK-based aid agency is supported by most Christian denominations and provides relief and development assistance regardless of race, religion or culture. Suranne and Sally met Christian Aid partners who are supporting HIV positive women and young children.
