Tea Party from 2.30 to 4.00pm in the Link Hall
Our chosen charity for 2022-2023 is The Leprosy Mission.
Possibly many think that leprosy is a disease of the Bible but it is still a widespread scourge in many parts of the world.
Some may have been inspired by the life of Albert Schweitzer and others may have read "The Island" by Victoria Hislop.
Eddie Askew, whose books of meditations are used and admired by
members of our congregation, has given 37 years of service to leprosy sufferers, spending 15 years in India with his wife Barbara and latterly directing
The Leprosy Mission until his retirement.
It therefore seems particularly fitting that we should raise money
for such a worthy cause.
There is literature in the Tower, a box for donations and another for stamps.
NB. There is a request that stamps on paper should have no more than a 5mm border around each edge. If you have used stamps to offer but would find it a burden to cut the backing to size, please leave them in an envelope by the box.
Right now there is plum jam for sale!
