PBCC TO PARTICIPATE IN THE BAG IT BEAT IT CHALLENGE!
For the 3rd year running, the Plymouth Brethren are participating in the British Heart Foundations Bagathon challenge – only this year BHF have renamed the scheme Bag it Beat it. http://bagit.bhf.org.uk/ The BHF’s target for this year is again one million bags, an inspiring goal bearing in mind that this could equate to £20 Million in funding for life changing research! For the last 2 years the PBCC have won this challenge donating nearly 16000 bags from their members in total – worth a staggering £320K to BHF!
With over 300 churches nationwide the brethren teams are rallying again with enthusiasm to do all we can to match or if possible even beat last year’s excellent result.
The British Heart Foundation is the UK’s number one heart charity dedicated to fighting heart disease. Coronary heart disease is the UK’s single biggest killer and the BHF are leading the fight against it, and have been doing so now for over 50 years.
With a number of members of the PBCC having experienced heart problems in their own families, and having proven the benefits of the latest research and technology that in many cases has been funded by such charitable actions, the PBCC have great respect for this dedicated charity and are committed to helping their research teams by getting unreservedly involved in this challenge. We realise the vital help that is provided to the charity through every single extra bag that is donated.
We will be updating this post daily to tell you how many bags the PBCC have donated in this year’s challenge so keep coming back to find out how we’re doing, and blog supportively for this fantastic cause!
The PBCC have donated 9669 bag so far to the Beat it Bag It Campaign!
