Clacton Foodbank    Thanks to all who provided carrier bags as well as food. The warehouse is better stocked after all the Harvest donations, but the need, now, is for long-life mild, tinned fish and packs to 40 teabags. All your help is very much appreciated. (Sandra)

TEECH                      Rob from TEECH was delighted with the bags we managed to give him for the older boys and girls on his Christmas trip to Moldova. He has asked if we will try to concentrate on the older children in the future if at all possible. So, for the moment we are asking for pads of plain or lined paper and colouring pencils. We will try to ask for different items each month ready for the summer gift bags which will be collected at the end of July.
Of course, any other items for the younger children will also be sent as usual. Hats, gloves, mittens and scarves are needed especially for the older ones. Blankets are needed too. All your lovely knitting is much appreciated.
Many thanks Chris (St James’ St Christopher’s) and Eileen (URC)
