Salvation Army Appeal: Many families struggle to provide a special celebration meal at Christmas and the Salvation Army are providing fresh turkeys for them. They are appealing for donations of cakes, puddings mince pies etc to make the celebration complete and also new, unwrapped toys and gifts. Please leave any contributions in the Hall.

Christmas Day Invitation: We have received a message from the Salvation Army, regarding a special lunch/party they intend to hold on Christmas Day, between noon and 4.00 pm. They are catering for a maximum of 35 elderly people, who are isolated and lonely and who would normally be spending Christmas Day alone.

If you know anyone who would qualify for this, please see Maria Ford or one of the Pass Keepers for further details. Criteria are that guests should be over 65, would otherwise be alone and can use toilet facilities without assistance.
