Fundraising

The Sale of Work last Saturday raised over £470 for parish funds. Many thanks to the fundraising team and many helpers and donors. A final total will be printed next week.

The Fundraising Social on Friday evening went very well, with over 40 parishioners and friends of the parish in attendance.  We thank most sincerely Henry and Catriona for providing the live music free of charge, all those who bought tickets (every penny will be spent on the homeless men) and all who provided food. The evening raised £444 towards the Homeless Mens’ Dinner next Sunday. It costs around £600 to provide the men with a meal and gifts, so donations will be accepted during the week towards this fund.

The next Bingo Nights will be on 14th September and 12th October, all starting at 7.30pm.

Parish lotto – see notice-board in hall for details.

We are very grateful to two anonymous donors of money for parish funds totalling £150. Many thanks for your generosity.

Community

The next soup run will take place on Saturday 5th November. Donations of men’s clothing, sandwiches, fruit, chocolate and cigarettes are needed.

The Parish Food Store has food available for those who need a helping hand. Speak to Fr Morris if you know of someone in need. Sincere thanks to several individuals for their recent very kind food donations. The Food Store helped to feed 11 people last week. Please bring your donations to church or to the chapel house. A list of suggested items can be found here.
