Peter Watkins: September 2016
As usual, we shall be supporting the Whitechapel Mission at our Harvest Festival service on Sunday 9th October. Please bring in items needed by the homeless and vulnerable men and women. These include tinned and dry food, clothing, bedding, toiletries and household items listed when you click here.
The Whitechapel Mission has been serving the homeless and marginalised for 140 years — including a day centre, skills training and career advice, activity programmes and specialist support for complex needs. By encouraging each person to address the issues which caused the homelessness, they help them to gain the skills and confidence to make lasting changes in their lives. Click here for their website.
