1.- White Flower Appeal – SPUC
The Society for the Protection of Unborn Children will be holding its annual appeal this weekend. SPUC is currently campaigning to stop the decriminalisation of abortion, which means taking abortion outside the law. This is the most dangerous threat to unborn children and their mothers in decades. Please be as generous as you can to help us defeat this attack.
