Lodging House Mission Harvest Appeal 2018

If you are able to help with the LHM Harvest Appeal  - any donation of food (or money) will be very gratefully appreciated. The LHM relies so much on donations of food as they are now open 364 days a year and this allows them  to provide free breakfasts and lunches to homeless men and women. It would be very much appreciated if you could stick to the required items that they know they use - as this helps reduce time and space requirements enormously with sorting all the donations out (some of us know how big a task this is as we helped with this last year!!!).   You can find the list on the Church Website Home Page or there are copies available at the back of the church.  Most needed items are diluting juice, tinned meat and tinned vegetables. Please also note that tea and coffee are not required this year.
