David Wilderspin: August 2018
The Vineyard Storehouse gave away 569 tonnes of food in 2017, which put food into the mouths of 3,624 people. This year they expect to give away 800 tonnes.
An Advice Hub now sees every client before going into the Storehouse, to see what other help they may need. The Hub sees about 35 people on Tuesdays and the same on Saturdays. Help can be given for CV advice, interview techniques, debt management, Connexions support and Adult Learning courses. Since late last year 14 people have got jobs.
Volunteers are needed to serve in the Hub on a Tuesday, working on these programmes for which training is given. See David Wilderspin if you could help or telephone Aylesbury 626065.
Please don't forget to keep bringing in your food and toiletry donations to church on Sundays for passing on to Vineyard.!
