Canon Rob’s Thought for the Week
St Mary's were very grateful for our harvest gifts of tins, etc. and thank you for your continued support. They regularly provide 14 food baskets each week and often have 2 or 3 one off food parcels sent out each week.
This week there have been generous donations from other Harvest Festivals and also from One Can Trust in High Wycombe, so stocks are high. However, they are getting through a lot of goods, so are grateful for any donations people feel able to give.
Here is the list of Food Cupboard requirements this week.
