Carol singing collection

Message from our church treasurer:

Just to let you know we collected a fabulous amount of £220.58 for the Nomad charity in Lincoln.

Thank you so much to all who donated! We hope you enjoyed the singing!


This week's food bank update

No specific item requests from the food bank this week as they are currently well stocked due to everyone's generosity. However they do say this (below). Bags may also be left at Nocton church in the back porch from where they will be collected and taken to the food bank.

Request for ‘Bags for Life’
To assist the Food Bank volunteers in the distribution of food and provisions, I’d like to put a shout out for ‘Bags for Life’. If you have any of these reusable robust bags that are serviceable and clean that you no longer use, they would be greatly appreciated. They can be dropped off at the Food Bank in the All Saints Church Vestry, accessed via Church Lane on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays between 1000-1100hrs. Thank you

Update just received from Branston Food Bank:
35 + hampers along with warm bags containing blankets, gloves, hats and hot water bottles were delivered, but it isn’t going to end there. Packing and delivering will continue until all the gratefully donated food and associated items are distributed to those who need it.
Thanks to all who continue to support those less fortunate. There are no specific requests from the food bank this week, but toiletries are always welcome!
