Christian Aid Week May 10th - 16th

Covid19 rules prevent us this year again from having our usual collection activities but that does not mean we can ignore the needs of others who have benefitted from our past activities.
Whereas life in our country has been difficult for everybody over the last year at least we can ease our mood with a lovely cup of tea or coffee. Imagine however that you cannot make that drink because you have no fresh water unless you walk several miles to fill a water container and then repeat the distance back home with your water. That is precisely what people in poorer countries have to do every day.

Donations to Christian Aid could help to fund the drilling of fresh water Wells near the villages in greatest need. A reliable source of water will help families withstand long drought or relentless rainstorms. Every envelope. Every gift. Every challenge can change lives.
During Christian Aid Week this year please think of others who do not have the advantages we all take for granted and make a donation of whatever you can afford.

To donate in support of those who are less fortunate than we, please
visit the Facebook page 'Christian Aid in Minehead'
find the Justgiving link and make a donation,
make a donation via your local church or
visit Christian Aid's national website www.caweek.org and follow the links to the correct page.

THANK YOU
Minehead and Alcombe Christian Aid Group

West Somerset Food Cupboard, May 2021

Food parcels since the project began in 2007 - 16000
Food parcels so far this year - 480

Dear Friends,

This newsletter is slightly different because I am saying goodbye to the food cupboard this month. As many of you will know I have been appointed as Rector of Porlock and Porlock Weir with Stoke Pero, Selworthy and Luccombe and so I must relinquish my role as co-ordinator of the food cupboard. I have been the co-odinator for the last four and a half years and have thoroughly enjoyed the work and meeting so many lovely people.

While I am leaving, of course the food cupboard will continue its work without interruption. For the time being Ali Sanderson will be taking over the role of co-ordinator, ably supported by the regular volunteers. Currently Ali is also being contracted by the church to undertake research into how the food cupboard operates alongside other agencies in the area and how this work can be sustained and developed appropriately for the future

The overwhelming kindness of those who donate items means that, at the moment, we have cupboards full to overflowing! There are no shortages from our list and actually we really need to use up some of the stock that we have. Currently demand for food boxes is relatively low so we are not using up our stock very quickly.

I am sad to be leaving, especially at a time when there is the potential for developments in new directions but I will continue to support the work of the food cupboard, even if it is in a less "hands on" capacity and I hope you will too. Thank you all for the tremendous support that I have received personally over the last four and a half years. Finally, a heartfelt thank you to all those who have worked as volunteers in my time at the food cupboard and those who work behind the scenes as trustees. You are the ones who make this work possible and successful! THANK YOU!

Ann Gibbs
Co-ordinator (now signing off!)
