In the light of the current situation in The Ukraine, and in response to a communication regarding the national and local church response, I have taken the decision that this year, donations from our weekly Lenten lunches (beginning on Friday 11th March) will be given to help our brothers and sisters in their time of great suffering and need. There are various appeals, including The British Red Cross, and I am awaiting a response from the diocese as to other appeals and will make a decision on which to go with.
If you are unable to attend the Lenten lunches bit would like to help then there will be a plate in church throughout Lent for donations.
In addition I have also decided that we will not be running football cards during March and I hope that perhaps those who participate in these may wish to donate to the appeal instead.
Please do get in touch if you would like to make a donation to the appeal.
