St Vincent de Paul Society need your help!

St Vincent de Paul Society. Your donations (esp. cereals, tinned meats, tinned soups, pasta, tea, coffee) for the food bank are very welcome. For a full list of what is needed, please see the list below.  For Afghan refugees, smart/casual clothes for men of working age are needed. We have now made contact with some of those hosting Ukrainian refugees in Solihull (There are at least 50 people/families opening their homes.)  The present request is for bicycles for children, teenagers and ladies.  The SVP can arrange to have bicycles serviced if needs be.  If you can help out, please email John Nolan on (Please do not bring bikes to church, as we have no place to store them.)  New members always welcome, next meeting 7.00pm Thursday 16th June in parish hall or ring John Nolan on 07400 399000.  The collection last week raised £149.89.  Thank you for your generosity.
