Harvest at Stanton
Harvest Festival—Gifts for THE FILLING STATION
We will be holding our Harvest Festival service in St. Giles church on Friday 21st October at 9.30am. Parents and friends are welcome to join us.
We will now be collecting Harvest Gifts which will be given to THE FILLING STATION, a charity for homeless people in Swindon. Gifts will need to be non perishable and easy to open. We hope that if you are shopping over the next few days you are able to pop a few items in you basket to support this very important cause. A box is in reception for us to fill! Suggested gifts are:
- Peaches or Fruit
- Baked beans with sausage
- Rice Pudding
- Tuna Chunks
- Corned Beef
- Baked Beans/Spaghetti/Ravioli.
- (Please no tinned vegetables or tinned tomatoes. Please think “Can I eat it now!”)
The life of most of the clients is such that they need everything, every week. Surprisingly, soap is one thing we don’t need, as there is limited access to water to use it. We have listed some suggestions. Small and many is better than big, as they will get lost quickly!
- Roll-on deodorant
- Shaving cream
- Loo rolls
- Household candles
