Children's Society

Dear All

In a few weeks it will be the annual House to House Envelope collection
on behalf of the Children's Society. As this falls so close to the
Christian Aid week envelope collection, I am planning instead of an
street collection, to hold a quiz on 4th April, and to recruit a group
of volunteers to collect money in the Coop Store on Dudlow's Green on
Saturday 19th April.

If you can spread the word and if you are able to attend the quiz and/or
help with the collection at the Coop, it would be much appreciated.

Many thanks for your help.

Happy New Year 2014!

This afternoon, Thursday 26th, we welcome a representative from CAFT, the Children's Adventure Farm Trust, to the annual Mothers' Union Social Concern Service at St Matthew's Church. The service starts at 2pm. This will give a great opportunity to hear more about this fabulous charity which we supported at last year's Christmas Tree festival. Please consider coming along. You do not have to be a member of Mothers' Union and absolutely everyone, men, women and children welcome.
