Thanks to all who supported the recent Macmillan Coffee Morning, which raised £215 for the charity, and to those who raised £150 from the auction of harvest produce. This was sent to the Oswestry and Borders Food Bank and Liz Jermy, Food Bank manager and job club coach writes: “I have just received the £150 harvest donation from yourselves. What a wonderful gift and so appreciated, we will be able to place this money in our emergency account to help those most in need. We have lately assisted with bedding, school uniforms, gas and electric, bus tickets and petrol vouchers. We feed an average of 31 people a week and are seeing increasing numbers of homeless as well as those in in-work poverty (very low income and insecure contracts)….. God bless, Liz.”

The lost sheep project aims to raise awareness of organ donation and those waiting for their NHS operation. If you’d be interested in crafting, knitting or sewing a sheep to be used for this, please contact Shirley on 01352 780730 or 07905 144541. Shirley would also be glad to receive poems or recipes to be collated for other fundraising purposes.
