All Welcome


Harvest is a traditional time to become aware again of the good things that we have. This year we are financially supporting the Bishop of St Albans Harvest Appeal which is seeking to raise money for, and awareness of, the work of Christian Aid in the Dominican Republic.

Many people in the UK will think of the Dominican Republic as a luxury holiday destination, but there is great poverty and great inequality in the country - two out of five people are classed as ‘poor’; one out of five are classed as ‘extremely poor’ and one in five adults cannot read or write and one in ten people do not have access to clean water or adequate sanitation.

A little goes a long way:
£2.50 could pay for seeds to set up a kitchen garden

£25.00 could pay for a gardening tool kit

£93.00 could pay for aday of emergency practise drills for a whole community
£293.00 could pay for a workshop for a whole community on preparing for natural disasters

We're also supporting locally the work of the Catholic Worker Farm in West Hyde again with our perishable and non perishable produce.

The farm are in particular need of any of the following:

Tins of chopped tomatoes
Home made Jam
Home made
Chutney Cooking oil
Nappies
Toilet paper
Sugar
Cheese
Juice
Porridge oats
Rice
Dried Beans
Lentils
Cous cous
Pasta

Many thanks in advance for your generosity.
