Bishop Richard backs IF campaign

Bishop Richard Blackburn has urged churches to back the IF Campaign, using the G8 summit to make strong calls to end global hunger.

The Bishop of Warrington, The Rt Rev Richard Blackburn, has urged churches to back the IF Campaign, the coalition of faith groups and development charities looking to use Britain’s hosting of the G8 summit to make strong calls to end global hunger.

In the biggest campaign since Making Poverty History, IF aims to give world leaders a wake up call to tackle Aid, Tax, and Land issues in an open an honest way.

Bishop Richard said “We need to seize the opportunity that hosting the G8 Summit brings to make sure that world leaders hear the urgent call to tackle the problem of hunger. The church has an important part to play in giving a voice to the voiceless and I urge everyone to sign up to this important campaign.”
