Helping the homeless

We were heartened to hear that our guide leader is involved in a homeless project at work; she would be very grateful for any of the following:
Cups, mugs, plates, bowls and cutlery;Blankets, sheets, duvet covers and pillow cases - they all keep out the cold at night, but are light enough to be carried around during the day;Towels for homeless people to wash/shower at the soup kitchen centre;Warm clothing - men's and women's - especially hats/gloves/scarves/socks.

Women's World Day of Prayer

This year's ecumenical service is at Holy Trinity, Idle at 27.00 pm on Friday 4 March 2011. The speaker will be Carol Lupton. Refreshments will be available after the service.

Fairtrade Fortnight

A whopping 30 million people knew about last year's Fairtrade Fortnight. That's 10 million more than 2009. So for two whole weeks we want the nation to get loud and proud about Fairtrade by asking everyone to "Show off your label". People love showing off about Fairtrade - tell the world about your cake made extra special by using Fairtrade sugar and spice, your most tempting bottle of wine, your comfiest pants. We want to load the FAIRTRADE Mark with meaning, telling them the tangible difference Fairtrade makes to producers.

At Thackley we'll be doing our bit by having our Fairtrade Stall in the foyer for the 2nd week of Fairtrade Fortnight (Monday 7th to Friday 11th March). Please give your support.

Lent Communion Services
