Sunday of the Year25th
for the bulletin Goods for Refugees
We will be sending another collection of excellent
quality winter clothing, bedding and toiletries to refugees and displaced
people living in Syria, Iraq and bordering countries. These items will be
sent via the charity Samara's Aid. Items are also needed for refugees
living in the Calais camp. Caritas are organising collections to be sent
Please bring any excellent quality, recently washed items to 7 Woodstock
Rd North, AL1 4QB by Sunday, 2nd October. You are also welcome to drop items
at the back of church after 11.30am Mass on Sunday, 2nd October.
Please specify if you have a preference that the items should go to the Middle
East or to Calais.
Volunteers needed to assist with packing or with driving items to Harold's
Wood on Thursday 6th or Friday 7th October would be very much appreciated,
as would donations to cover the costs of transporting goods from the UK.
It costs approximately £5 to send a black bin bag load to the Middle
East by lorry.
It would really help if items were separated into men/women/ children's groups.
If you have any questions please call (07787556073) or e mail email@example.com
