On theweekend of 4th/5th Decemberwe will be holding our parish Christmas collection for the Brentwood Foodbank.
We think that the following Seasonal Items would be particularly welcome:
Christmas Cake, Biscuits, Chocolates, Jellys, Sweets, Custard, Crackers, Pickles, Puddings, Selection Boxes, Advent Calendars for children, Gifts for Children (colouring books, pencils etc) as well as Cheese Biscuits, Crisps etc
Items always urgently needed are
Other items that would be greatly appreciated are
meat pies (tinned)
pasta bake sauce
large tins of peas/carrots
cartons of long-life milk
cartons of long-life juice
toothpaste and toothbrushes
all types of cleaning products
In order to maintain social distance, we will arrange for a collection point to be in the car park at each Mass; a representative will be there with the car boot open so that donations can be placed directly in the car, from where they will be delivered directly to the collection centre.
For those who prefer to donate money (cash or cheques) there will also be a collection box in the narthex. Please make cheques payable to ‘Brentwood Foodbank’.
Please remember those who are most in need. Your generosity will help make a real difference to those struggling and hurting in these challenging times.
