Harvest Festival – Thursday 4th October 2018
We will be holding a Harvest Festival for the children on Thursday 4th October 2018. This will be a brief talk about harvesting food and particularly about giving food to those in need.
We are asking for donations of any non-perishable food you can spare.

This year the food donations will be sent to the Booth Hall Homeless Shelter and Atherton Food Bank.
Any donations of food to this worthy cause would be appreciated by Thursday 4th October 2018.
