Peter Watkins: November 2015
I have received a letter of thanks from Tony Miller MBE on behalf of Whitechapel Mission which said,
"Please accept and pass on our sincere thanks to all our kind friends at Aylesbury Methodist Church for choosing Whitechapel Mission to receive their harvest gifts and clothing. These gifts are genuinely appreciated because they will be of great assistance in our work supporting people who are homeless. The demand for the services we provide to people who are homeless continue to increase. Our successes encourage more people to come to our door seeking help. Without support like yours we would be unable to meet these demands.
Harvest is a most important time for us here at Whitechapel. It allows us to replenish depleted stocks of the many items that are an essential part of our mission among the homeless. Thank you for your support which makes the continuation of our work possible. I enclose a certificate for display on your notice board."
So may I add a personal thanks to all who contributed in any way. Click here for the Whitechapel website.
