Sun 11th Dec 7.30pm to Mon 12th Dec 7.30pm
The Rector will sit-out for 24hours from 7.30pm on Sunday 11th December until 7.30pm on Monday 12th December. Please use the sign-up sheets in church over the next two Sundays, to offer your support by providing company in the trailer, together with food and refreshments over the 24 hours of the sit-out.
What should we bring along? – You can bring along hard cash and/or foodstuffs. Rev Adrian McCartney at the Larder Foodbank has asked that we also provide shower gels, hand creams, deodorants, hand soaps, present tags, jams, cooking sauces, woolly hats and gloves, scents for men and women, cellotape, wrapping paper crackers, Christmas candles, decorations for the home, Christmas puddings etc along with the ordinary run of the mill canned foodstuffs and dried pasta and rice. NB: No Baked Beans or Tomato soup as the Larder has simply got too much of this in the store already as these are the tinned foods most people donate.
