Our Harvest Festival this year is on Sunday 8th October at 10.30am. Once more, we are asking for donations that Peter and Ruth Watkins will arrange to have transported to The Whitechapel Mission in London. The Mission's website says, "When you donate goods, food or clothing to The Whitechapel Mission, you impact the lives of the poor and homeless in London. This year, our donors and volunteers helped The Whitechapel Mission provide more than 100,000 breakfasts, 34,000 bags of groceries, and 45,300 articles of clothing to men and women in desperate need of help. We rely on donated food and clothing to meet these important needs. We do not operate charity shops! Anything donated to the Whitechapel Mission will be given directly to people who are homeless." For the tinned and dry food, toiletries, clothing, bedding and other household goods they desperately need, please click here.

The style of Borg's writing is scholarly, logical and assessible, which made it easy...
