On the first anniversary of the Haiti earthquake, Wirral Methodists were proud to hand over a cheque for £100,000 to start the rebuilding of Leveque Methodist School in NW Port-au-Prince.

On the first anniversary of the Haiti earthquake, Wirral Methodists were proud to hand over a cheque for £100,000 to start the rebuilding of Leveque Methodist School in NW Port-au-Prince.
 
The total cost of rebuilding the school of 8 classrooms is £180,000. The Wirral Methodist Circuit has committed itself to raising this money, and this first payment will cover the costs of the first phase of construction which includes ground preparation, foundations and concrete flooring across the whole site.
 
The recent service of Recollection and Dedication at Wallasey Methodist Church celebrated the work achieved so far with contributions from Rev Dr Leslie Griffiths, Rev Jim Dobson and Haiti minister Rev. Marcus Torchon who is currently serving in Neston, Bromborough and Willaston churches.
 
 Further details about Wirral Methodists’ fundraising efforts for Haiti and how to contribute, can be found on their website www.wirralmethodist.btck.co.uk
