Gingerbread men.jpgThe children of Lighthouse Family Church near Poole (Bex Okotel’s UK church) held an auction of promises for Child of Hope.

This was an online fundraising event where children could promise to make or do something which others could bid for. Once bidding was closed, the highest bidders received the items they had won.

The children came up with a variety of creative ideas for the auction. This included baking cakes, making capes, painting pictures, growing plants and more besides. From the children's efforts (with their parents’ support) and generous bidding within the church family, £227 was raised for Child of Hope.
