• Thanks to Annette and Allan Williams who attended a special training and information day for church treasurers last week at Cardiff. We are grateful to Annette and also our church auditors Sheenah and Allan for their dedicated work on our behalf.

Thanks to the ‘Hygiene Bank’ for another donation of toiletries for the ‘Soup Station’. We are grateful to Maxine Walters for making contact with the group thought her son Rhys who represents the Hygiene Bank in this this area. The Hygiene bank is a grassroots people powered charity, grounded in community. The network of banks exists to ensure that those living in poverty and can’t afford to be clean, have access to the basics. The charity believes that everyone should have a dignified life. Feeling clean should not be a luxury or a privilege in the modern world and so the charity moves to inspire social change thorough the donation of toiletries. (We are grateful for the support the Hygiene bank continues to give to our ‘Soup Station’)
