Christian Aid Party with Bishop Tom Wright at Auckland Castle

Sunday 25th July was spent at Auckland Castle, Bishop Auckland the rather splendid home of the Bishop of Durham Dr Tom Wright who was hosting a final party before he leaves to take up his new post as Research Professor of New Testament and Early Christianity at the University of St Andrews, Scotland.

It was a pleasure to meet the new director of Christian Aid Loretta Minghella OBE (far left of the photo).As chief executive Loretta is responsible for strategic direction, plans and programmes.

The event was called 'Jazz and Jam' a celebration of the work of Christian Aid in the North East.

A beautiful jazz group played whilst champagne and cake (with raspberry jam inside) was served on the lawn. All the refreshments were donated for the event.
