WMC: November 2017
Wantage & Grove Food Bank
The Wantage and Grove Foodbank will be delivering Christmas Hampers at the beginning of December to those who are in need and would benefit from receiving this gift.
Donations of Christmas cakes, puddings, mince pies, Christmas biscuits and sweets, savoury crisps and biscuits, pickles and jams could be placed in the box in the Wantage Chapel vestibule..
The hampers will be made up on the last Sunday in November.
Just one plea — that the items have at least January 2018 as the Best Before date.
Thank you in anticipation of generous donations as ever.
