A CHURCH in Cannington has raised more than £200 towards a mission to help communities in Uganda.

Cannington United Reformed Church raised £227.25 at a jumble sale and cream tea event this month.

Since 2003 Westfield Church and Cannington Church have sent out a team each year to Uganda to work alongside their partner organisation, Back to God.

A team from Cannington is currently there for almost three weeks helping children, staff, families and communities of three isolated rural primary schools based in communities where there is no electricity, water or sewerage service.
