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, March 2021

Food parcels since the project began in 2007 - 15,870
Food parcels so far this year - 350

Dear Friends

Firstly my apologies that this letter is a little late in coming out. Many thanks to all of you who have donated goods to us over the last month, and in particular for all the Easter eggs and chocolates which we have received and which have really made a difference to our recipients over the holiday period.

At the start of the month we were still in full lockdown but on the 8th March schools reopened and soon after that we saw a significant drop in demand for boxes. We have returned to the level of demand that we had before the first lockdown began and, even if that is temporary, it is encouraging.

In the last newsletter I explained that we did not currently need financial donations and that is still the case. We are receiving many donations each week so that I have had to do very little top up shopping. Thank you for all that you are doing. Currently we have an abundance of the following:
Tinned hot meats and pies
Tinned fruit
Cereal
Biscuits
Rice
Tinned fish
Soup
Please avoid the above items if you are considering donations as we need to use the supplies we already have.
We do need the following:
Tinned potatoes
Tinned carrots
Fruit juice
Savoury biscuits
Pasta sauce
Jam or similar spreads

Thank you all again for your support.

Ann Gibbs
Co-ordinator
