CHIROPODY AT WRAYSBURY BAPTIST CHURCH:
st
Dee, our Chiropodist, will be with us next on 1 April and
th
6 May. Appointments: contact Pam Hillman on 482296.
VOLUNTEERS
NEEDED:
Adviza,
a
charitable
organisation that supports young people to help them
achieve greater things in life, is short of volunteers in its
department which supports parents with children who
have special needs. The work will be in the community
across East Berkshire. Volunteers will be given high
quality training and support and reimbursed for all
reasonable expenses. If you are interested in helping
please contact Jacob Cook ([email protected]).
ST. ANDREW’S CHANCEL: The PCC has passed a
proposal to extend the raised area of the chancel forward
a bit, up to the front pews. This will make it much easier
to accommodate drama and other performances, the
New Life Band, visiting choirs and the Young Seekers.
Pictures can be seen on the second page of this Link on
St. Andrew’s website (www.standrewswraysbury.co.uk –
Weekly Newsletter).
th
CRAFT FAIR: 25 April, 1.00 – 3.30 p.m. Wraysbury
Baptist Church! Tables may be booked to sell craft items
(£15 large table or £8 small table) – booking forms
available from Robin Urwin ([email protected]
or 482553). We will have a couple of tables of our own
and would be happy to receive donations of any suitable
items which can be sold to raise money for the church –
bring them to the Baptist Church or contact Robin.
HELPING THE HOMELESS: At the end of February a
further 12 large bags of clothes were taken to Slough
Homeless Our Concern (SHOC), who are always looking
for clothes in good condition for adult men and women
who find themselves homeless in the Slough area. As the
colder weather remains with us, they urgently need warm
clothing, including coats, hats, gloves and scarves, as
well as sleeping bags. Items may be brought to
Wraysbury Baptist Church and we will pass them on to
SHOC.
SLOUGH FOODBANK: Donations of imperishable food
items for Slough Foodbank, which aims to support local
people with emergency food packages, can be placed in
the boxes in all three churches throughout the year. At
the moment they would particularly welcome long-life fruit
juice, instant mashed potato, sponge puddings, long-life
milk, soap and shampoo.
