Fund Raising Events
Thank you to all who supported the recent coffee morning at St Peter’s, £204.00 was raised for church funds. The organ recital and Lent lunch also raised £50.00 for the Bishop’s Lent Appeal. This is ongoing during Lent and envelopes are available at the back of the churches if tax can be recovered on your donation. Thank you in anticipation

Street Pastors Alert!!!!
A major source of funding for the Street Pastors is to be withdrawn, which puts the whole charity at risk of folding. If you would like to help financially they would be very grateful to hear from you, www.iowstreetpastors.org.uk, or speak to Caroline Pugh, Dawn Warren or Vanessa Hounsfield.

Bottle Stall
Bottles for the St Helen’s bottle stall at Seaview May Fayre on 6th May are urgently needed. As this is one of the main fund raisers, John & Rose would be very grateful to receive in date bottles of anything. Thank you.
