Request for help from The Cinnamon Trust
The Cinnamon Trust is the national pet care charity for the elderly or terminally ill. We offer free pet care to enable owners and their companion animals to stay together. We have been asked for some dog walking support for a resident of Alcombe but don't have enough local volunteers to be able to help so wondered whether any of the church family might like to volunteer. Please email for details.

West Somerset Food Cupboard, November 2021
Dear friends and supporters of the West Somerset Food Cupboard
Harvest just kept on coming this year! Thank you so much for all the generous donations of food and funds which, along with ongoing collections from Tesco, Morrisons, village shops in Wootton Courtenay, Porlock and Carhampton, and fresh fruit and veg gift cards from Alcombe Co-op, have really helped us to immediately help families and individuals facing food insecurity and related challenges.
We don't currently need:
Tins of hot meat meals
We would welcome:
UHT milk (1 and 2 pint)
Small jars instant coffee
Tinned carrots and tinned peas
Christmas food items (see below...)
Yes, Christmas is coming, ready or not! If you are in a position to help, for the month of November only (as we will be packing and distributing in early December), we would really appreciate donations of Christmas food items such as Christmas cakes, puddings, mince pies, yule logs, packets of savoury and sweet Christmas biscuits, nibbles, pickles, chocolates and sweets. Small items are as useful to us as family sized ones as we can always double up but splitting packs for individuals living alone is tricky. Thank you for helping us bring some festive cheer!
91 food boxes have been distributed during October, making the total for this year so far 877
With your help we continue to provide dignified support where it is needed most - giving a hand up as opposed to a hand-out. A little kindness, a donated food item or two when you do your shopping, can bring about very real and positive change for another member of your community. Thank you for sharing.

Local members of Amnesty International thought that members of CTIM might like to know that Sunday 10 October is World Day against the Death Penalty. Perhaps church members would like to remember in their prayers and addresses those around the world who have been sentenced to death on the basis of unfair trials and 'evidence' extracted under torture and those imprisoned for the peaceful expression of their religious or political views.

MINEHEAD COMMUNITY SUPPER
Come and share with us a delicious two course supper giving you the
opportunity to see what we offer at our community meal. This normally
takes place on the 1st and 3rd Wednesday of each month between 5pm and 6pm at The Beach Hotel, Minehead, and is attended by those who have been given a free meal voucher by local support agencies thereby giving them the opportunity to engage with others and enjoy a heart-warming healthy supper in pleasant surroundings.
To enable us to offset these costs we encourage the general public
to join us at this time and donate £5.00 for their supper.
