The Carol Singers who turned up outside the Co-op in Bishopthorpe on the evening of 22nd December did an excellent job. They raised £52.07 in cash and were given four bags of groceries for York Food Bank. The singers were joined by shoppers some of whom hadn't sung carols in ages, so a lot of un was had by all. Thank you to all who participated.

With winter upon us all, the pressure on York Food Bank is increasing once again. York Food Bank is in urgent need of tinned meat and vegetables, dried potato, tinned fruit, jam, small bags of sugar, fruit juice, biscuits, tea and coffee, and bathroom and kitchen cleaning items such as washing up liquid and bathroom toiletries. Any items you can offer can be left with Tom Whaley or in the box at the back of Church. Alternatively you can deliver to Quench Café on Thursday mornings at the Methodist Church. Unfortunately we are unable to accept fresh fruit and vegetables or homemade jams and chutneys.
