Brian Latham: October 2015
A BIG THANKS to everyone that contributed goods for the refugees in Calais. The response from church members and friends has been overwhelming. On Sunday I will be taking a Luton Transit van full of items to a new distribution warehouse in Slough. For your information we will be taking boxes of trousers, hats, underwear, shirts, coats, shoes, jumpers, sleeping bags, blankets, pots & pans, 10 tents, 243 pairs of socks, 2 large boxes of soap/shower-gel, 110 toothbrushes, 55 tubes of toothpaste and 60 razors. All items that were too large will be handed on to our collection for the Whitechapel Mission for London's homeless at next Sunday's Harvest Service.
