Fakenham Parish Church is preparing to raise money for refugees as part of the annual Christian Aid Week.

The theme of the week, which runs from May 14 until May 21, is supporting refugees and Fakenham Parish Church will take part by hosting a fundraising breakfast on May 6 and running market stalls and street collections.

It is one of many churches across the region that will be raising money for the week.

Christian Aid's Norfolk Regional Coordinator, Julian Bryant, said: 'Today, tens of millions of people across the globe are fleeing their homes because of war, conflict and disaster, and are making dangerous journeys in search of safety. We can make such a difference to help these people.'

He added: 'Fundraising is not always the easiest of things to do but we may be literally saving lives by doing this in Norfolk.'
