At the request of Fr Damian and Osmotherley Parish, the Diocesan Finance Office will assume responsibility for the financial administration of the Baghdad Appeal from 1st September 2008. From that date, any cheques for the Appeal should be sent to the Curial Office, made payable to ‘Diocese of Middlesbrough – Baghdad Appeal’.

John Hinman and the team at Osmotherley will continue to lead the Appeal and deal directly with the Children’s Hospital in Baghdad. For more information on the Baghdad project, and how you may help, please contact John Hinman on (01642) 700075 or e-mail to:
