The Revd the Lord Griffiths of Pembrey and Burry Port's message to OWW:

“It was a pleasure almost beyond words to be invited to offer my support since I’ve been a beneficiary of One World Week since it began its operations almost thirty years ago. It has stimulated my thinking, provided me with materials and ideas, and offered wonderfully open approaches to world development issues which ecumenical and mixed groups could join together to enjoy.”
