Holy Angels Third World Group was founded in February 1984 by Peter and Mary Phillips. The Groupís financial aim is to raise funds for Third World projects through appeals to parishioners and others,
and through a variety of special events. These have included concerts, dances, an art exhibition, sponsored walks and hunger lunches; while the sale of fairly traded produce,
stationery, and manufactured items has been promoted through a quarterly Fair Trade Stall. In addition to providing financial support for Third World projects, the Group aims
to draw attention to the plight of the deprived and marginalised in Third World countries, and supports other bodies assisting directly in the field
or campaigning in the interests of the Third World, and of Justice and Peace at home as well as abroad.
The sale of Fair Trade products in the Tent was a regular activity

Christmas Sponsored Walk, 29 December 2003
The Christmas Sponsored Walk in aid of Third World charities has, for a number of years now, been a feature of parish life. Led again by the indefatigable John Penny and organised by Gerry Daniel, the walk on Monday 29th December covered a distance of approximately six miles around Dunham with a break for lunch at the Axe and Cleaver.
A beautiful crisp and sunny morning brought together twenty-seven energetic souls to enjoy good company and invigorating exercise, progressing through the fields, the deer park, and along the canal to the Axe and Cleaver, where they were joined by others, increasing the number on the afternoon leg of the walk to over thirty.
It was a most enjoyable outing, as well as raising just over £200, which will be allocated to a specific project at the next meeting of the Third World Group. Many thanks to leader and organiser, and congratulations to all who participated, walkers and sponsors alike, on a most successful and enjoyable event.
(Sorry the photos didnít turn out very well. Not surprising when the photographer neglected to check that the micro switch on the camera hadnít turned itself on in his pocket. However, even though faces are indistinct (Who said ĎItís perhaps a good job?) they canít disguise the enthusiasm and raring-to-go atmosphere during Johnís briefing at the start of the walk.)
