Christian Aid 70th Anniversary Project
To coincide with Christian Aid Week 2015 (10-16 May), our guest blog this week is by Jack Arthey, 70th Anniversary Project Manager at Christian Aid. Jack explains the work Christian Aid are undertaking to tell the story of their organisation and its work; including producing an interactive timeline of the history of the NGO, showcasing a selection of posters, photographs and videos.
Jack Arthey writes: “To mark the 70th anniversary of Christian Aid making grants to alleviate human suffering and eradicate poverty the agency decided to research its archives, written as well as audio-visual, to produce an interactive timeline to tell its story.
It has also collaborated with the BBC to broadcast a commemorative worship service, commissioned a new hymn, produced a special edition of the Christian Aid magazine, contributed to a range of newspaper articles and planned a series of special activities throughout England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales.”
