Self Isolating? You can still help us support these charities
Once again we are collecting for Water Aid during Lent. Do consider supporting this charity as an alternate to giving something up.
Bring us your ring pulls as these are sent to people in the Philippines to be made into jewellery. We have already sent one batch off and have decided to continue to collect ring pulls as they are worth 3p each to the Purple Community Fund. They will send them to the women homeworkers in the Philippines.....so bring your ring pulls from drinks cans only please, to the collecting container which is back in the chapel kitchen.
