Visit to Jubilee Food Bank

The food bank that we collect goods for at Banner Cross is the Jubilee Food Bank. We have arranged a visit to see where it happens and what it looks like.  But as well as looking around we hope to stay and share in with the group of people cooking together and having lunch.  The date of the visit is Thursday Jan 17th at 11am.  Please give your name to someone from the Leadership Team or put your name on the list in the porch.  We will probably go by car, but we'll decide later when we know how many wish to go.''

The Motor Neurone Disease Association (www.mndassociation.org) is the charity for the coffee collections during the current quarter (December 2018 – February 2019). MNDA is focused on improving access to care, research and campaigning for those people living with or affected by MND.

We are raising funds for South Yorkshire Refugee Law and Justice, which helps refused asylum seekers in South Yorkshire.

The Archer Project is in need of a continuing supply of Pot Noodles, tinned fish or fruit with ring pulls and breakfast cereals.  Don’t forget to support the Food Bank with an extra item when you do your shopping.  Please donate unwanted clean clothing/shoes/blankets/sleeping bags to Ben’s Place via Alan Brailey.
