We collect stamps for the Leprosy Mission. It is hard to believe that a bunch of used stamps can help transform the life of someone affected by leprosy. But the fact is that it can! Over the past 30 years the Leprosy Mission has raised more than £1 million to benefit people affected by leprosy. Find out more here

Come and join the same service held all over the world on the same day. Words written by women from Zimbabwe. Our own minister Farai will be assisting with this service and bringing items from her country to help us get the feel of her home. All men and women are invited to join us.
Once again the choir will lead the singing and there will be refreshments afterwards. The subject is Rise, take up your mat and walk! and Rita Poulson has agreed to be our leader this year.
Do come and enjoy the service.

February sees us meet to raise money for Listening books. This is run by Calibre Audio Library, which is a national charity, providing a subscription-free service of unabridged audio books for adults and children with sight problems, dyslexia or other disabilities, who cannot read print. One of our regulars, Dick as a user of this service, suggested we supported Calibre in their work. Come and talk over your half term plans and spring planting ideas as the days are starting to get a little brighter and the clocks will soon be going forward.
New Year saw us open our 2020 campaign raising £120 for Mind who provide advice and support to empower anyone experiencing a mental health problem.
