An eight-strong party from Inglewhite Church has returned from an eye-opening trip to Sierra Leone.

The group, including Pastor John Irwin and the Foot family from Chipping, went to Africa to see the work of Preston-based International Aid Trust first hand.

Pastor Irwin said: “The longer you are there the more overwhelming the needs become and you face the question of where you should actually start to help in order to make a difference.
