22 Oct - Chain links signed in Malvern
Here are the congregation of Lansdowne Crescent Methodist Church with their paper chains signed during One World Week on Sunday. Rev Alison Richards writes: "During the service many of us completed the Jubilee for Justice chain link and the children joined them together before we sang the final hymn We are marching in the light of God and the chain was carried round the church by the children. The congregation were then invited to make the pledge their own by saying Amen at the end, before going outside to have the photo taken."

7 June 2012 - 'Jubolympics' in Birmingham
A great event in Birmingham last night. Staged in St Philip's Square, Birmingham Jubilee Debt Campaign activists held a race between poor countries (skeletons), bankers and the International Monetary Fund: the 'Jubolympics'! (With apologies to anyone who hasn't seen the tv programme Twenty-Twelve...)
Well done to everybody who took part in the run. One regret though - you shouldn’t have let the IMF win all the races!
The stunt got local media coverage as well - featuring in the Birmingham Mail.
