Fair Trade Fundraising

GIVE A CAR  If you have an old car that you no longer need, why not put it to good use?  Giveacar will collect if from you and either sell it at auction or scrap it, then give the proceeds to Traidcraft Exchange.  You'll be helping some of the world's poorest families escape poverty forever.  To find out more, call Giveacar on 0207 736 4242  or  www.giveacar.co.uk
Old Jewellery - I am starting another box of old jewellery if you have anything broken or out of date that you no longer want, do give it to me and I will send it off.  I have already sent 5 packages.  Many thanks Cynthia Giles.


If you would like to read a Bible passage in a Sunday morning service, please let Ces Jones know and whether it will be at a 9.00 or 10.30 service.   Thank you.
