The Christ Little Band– an organisation within the Ghanaian Methodist Fellowship –UK Chaplaincy has donated a cheque of two hundred and fifty pounds (£250.00) to the Methodist Homes for the Aged (MHA). The cheque was presented at the Founders’ Day Celebration of the Christ Little Band on 24 January 2016 at St Mark’s Methodist Church, Tottenham.
Stoke Mandeville Hospital also received a cheque of £250.00 pounds. This was in recognition of excellent treatment Mr Kojo Hagan– a patron of Christ Little Band and staunch member of the Ghanaian Fellowship had some years ago when he was admitted to the hospital.
Christ Little Band was founded 130 years ago in Cape Coast, Ghana (then, Gold Coast), to deepen Christian faith through; Bible study, and to promote practical Christian values. The founders’ day celebration was also used to launch the 10th anniversary celebration of Christ Little Band– GMF-UK branch.
Though can’t boast of great numbers, the band which has a motto: “Together we stand, divided we fall”, has over the past years contributed significantly to many organisations including Methodist Hospital, Wenchi and Methodist Clinic, Amakom, both in Ghana. Having made some contributions to organisation in Ghana, the band has now shifted focus to organisations in Britain, and it is their hope and prayer that they would continue to help such organisations in the years ahead.
The Ghanaian Methodist Fellowship UK branch of the band is taking the challenge to set up more branches across London in the coming years. The outgoing leader of the band-Opanyin Esther Opoku- Gyimah was honoured at the service for her support and service to the band.
