Westerley Christian Care Home 

King Edward Road, Minehead TA24 5JB 

2020 has been a difficult time for everyone not least the residents at Westerley. Under the guiding hand of Josie the manager we have been able to keep Covid free. Unfortunately however we have been unable to raise valuable funds for Residents activities. We were grateful for a donation earlier on in the year enabling us to install a gazebo in the garden allowing residents to get as much benefit from being outside as possible. Now winter is approaching we need to provide more activities to help every-ones wellbeing indoors. To do this we need to be able to raise some extra funds. We  aim to  do this three ways:-

* “Family  Christmas Cake  Raffle” Tickets £1 each to be drawn December 9th. Anyone who would like to have a go will need to put the money/cheque with name and contact details in an envelope, marked for the attention of Ian Atkins and let us have it at Westerley before the 4th December 2020.

*Order an Iced Christmas Cake.  Fruit or sponge. Two sizes large £9.50, Small £6. Orders must be received at Westerley by 1st  December, together with payment and contact details in an envelope marked for attention of Ian Atkins. Collection can then be arranged for Mid December.

*Donations. If you find you cannot support either of the above please consider a donation. Any amount will be gratefully received. Just pop it into an envelope, mark it for the attention of Ian Atkins and send it to Westerley.

All cheques should be made payable to “Minehead  Amenity Fund

Let’s make it a fun time for everyone. Thank you  in advance for their support.           

Any further enquiries contact     or at Westerley.

West Somerset Food Cupboard, September 2020

Food parcels since the project began in 2007 - 14,686
Food parcels so far this year - 1150

Dear Friends,

As September ends we have entered the season of harvest festivals, although they may not take the form we are used to this year! Already we have had some goods donated following services.

I am very grateful to everyone who volunteers at the food cupboard on a regular basis. I couldn't manage without them!

At the moment we have a return of the bean mountain and it has been joined by a pasta, tea and cereal mountain. In fact we have plenty of most items and so there are no shortage items that I need to ask for, with the exception of savoury biscuits. I recently asked for coffee and cold meats and in response those have been coming in in plentiful supply.

In the next few weeks we are going to move things around in the food cupboard. This is to facilitate the church's work with young people and children and free up some space for them. Hopefully we will get all the moving done in one day but please look out for changes if you are coming to the premises to make donations or collections.

Thank you all again for your ongoing support.

Ann Gibbs
Food Cupboard Co-ordinator

Dear Friends,
Minehead & Alcombe Christian Aid Group
wish to thank all who so generously donated to the Christian Aid appeal this year.
The year 2020 will be remembered for many historical things, not least of all the Covid19 pandemic which effected the lives of everybody around the world. It will also be remembered for the outflow of care and generosity in communities, international, national and local across our country and the world. Lives had to be re-set and things normally taken for granted were seen in a much different light.
Because of the pandemic and the social lockdown we were unable to run the Rainbow Fair and the street collections. Instead a Just Giving page for Christian Aid was set up and this raised £410 which went directly to Christian Aid. Many people who struggled with the link to this page will have had the opportunity to donate via the Christian Aid webpage.
During a time of great call on your generosity and charitable giving , time or money, all at Christian Aid wish to express thanks for your generosity.
We cannot know what 2021 will bring but we all hope that when the time comes around we will be able to be closer together, physically and emotionally, to help those less fortunate than we are.
Thank you all so much for your continuing support.
Bill Griffiths and the Minehead & Alcombe Christian Aid Group.
