Food Bank Forest Hill – you can leave contributions in our Crucifix door Porch
On Wednesday 14th March we made our 4th trip to the Forest Hill Food Bank. Since Harvest 2017 St Hilda’s has collected over 100kg of foods and toiletries etc to help families in need. ‘My Jamii Cafe’ has been a local collection point for the food bank for some time – and we are happy to welcome contributions at St Hilda’s too on Fridays and Saturdays at the Crucifx Door Porch – we are in and out a lot on these days so it’s safe to leave them in the porch if no one answers the buzzer – but if you will, do put in a note with your email address. The Food Bank need particular items from time to time – canned meats, vegetables, fruits, and breakfast cereals are always good, and also babies’ nappies, baby food toothpaste and lavatory paper.
Join us for St Hilda’s for ‘Cuppa and chat’ Tuesdays 11am-1pm – games and social – Quiz every 2nd Tuesday entrance via Main Door in Courtrai Road. See twitter feed for photos.
