The London Run continues this Monday. Our guests are not being provided with any accommodation during the current lockdown so they are still out wandering the streets. Please bring your sandwiches, boiled eggs, soft fruit, crisps, drinks, individually wrapped cakes and small chocolate biscuit bars (such as penguins or two finger kit-kats) to the Parish Centre by 12 noon on Monday. You can leave your donations on the table just inside the door from 7:30am onwards.
We ask that you mark each sandwich bag clearly, stating what the contents are. Preferred fillings are ham, cheese, tuna, peanut butter, marmite or jam. Jars of peanut butter, marmite or jam for sandwiches would be most welcome. Thank you for your continued support.
The Slough Run continues to provide basic foods to needy families in Slough as well as the guests we housed. The number of families in need is increasing, especially due to one-hour contracts. Non-perishable goods such as breakfast cereals, rice, pasta, baked beans, tinned tomatoes, tuna or tinned meat needed; as well as bananas, oranges or satsumas. Please leave your contributions at the Parish Centre any day of the week and we will deliver them on your behalf.
WE ARE IN URGENT NEED OF COFFEE, SUGAR AND GREEN TOP MILK.
If you would like to contribute financially you can donate via our website or you can make a cheque payable to “London & Slough Run” and drop it through the letterbox at the Priory.
PLEASE DO NOT BRING ANYTHING OTHER THAN FOOD. Due to COVID-19 restrictions we do not have the volunteers to sort any other donations. We do not require any clothing, bed linen or china at present. All our clothes storage facilities are now completely full.
THANK YOU to everyone who contributed to the CHRISTMAS LONDON & SLOUGH RUN. Your generosity and thoughtfulness was so appreciated by the homeless on the streets. Thanks to parishioners who donated gifts for the Giving Tree and to our stalwart ladies who wrapped presents. Thanks also to the men and women who went up to London on the night; who not only distributed the bags to those in need but spread a little Christmas cheer.
The London & Slough Run helps the homeless and people in need.
