Ruth & Peter Watkins: October 2018
Each year, and often during the year, we support the Whitechapel Mission in London; if you are new to this, you can look at their website by clicking here.
At Harvest time we make gifts of the dry goods needed to sustain their work throughout the winter, and, during the year, events are held raising money for their work. It is an easy way of helping those less fortunate than ourselves at the mission. For those who work there, life is not easy, and it is a real commitment to get up daily and serve the homeless of the capital, which never sees a decrease.
Our Harvest Festival this year is on Sunday 14th October and to see what items Whitechapel need most, please click here.
