SVP Fruit Collection


A new initiative by our parish Society of St Vincent de Paul is to collect fruit from parishioners to make available at the Gatehouse - a drop-in centre for the homeless and poorly-housed, opposite our church at St Giles' Church Hall. The first collection was held on 2nd June, and as you can see from the above picture, there was an excellent response. We will be collecting fruit on the first Sunday of each month from now on.

Once the new parish centre is opened, very soon, it will also be possible for the Food Group to prepare sandwiches and soup in the new kitchen as another way of helping the homeless and vulnerable.
