CAMPAIGNERS will encircle Huddersfield Parish Church with a white band on Friday as part of a candle-lit vigil.
Church members and members of the Huddersfield Interfaith Council will join millions of people worldwide in a Make Poverty History campaign.
The vigil, between 7pm and 9pm, will coincide with the national protest in London to show the Government the strength of feeling on world poverty.
"Every day 30,000 children are dying as a result of extreme poverty," said the Vicar of Huddersfield, the Rev Catherine Ogle.
"Concern about poverty is an issue that unites people from all the different faith communities in our town."
Make Poverty History is a year-long campaign urging the Government to make 2005 a year of focus on world poverty.
Its emblem is a white arm or wrist band.
People can also fill in Vote for Trade Justice cards. They will be sent to the Prime Minister, showing people's feelings on the issues of trade justice, debt relief and better aid.
