In the Community

The people of West Berkshire are always very generous in the run up to Christmas (sorry to mention it so early!) collecting all the familiar Christmas food for our clients and we do appreciate all the donations. Some organisations in the past have suggested a reverse Advent calendar as a way of giving at this time. Well, this is our version!

We plan during November to have a donations calendar, each day has a specific item that we need. You will notice that 2 items appear twice, milk and custard, because we keep running out! Some of the items are for the 'store cupboard boxes' which we distribute where appropriate. See separate list or check the website www.2bsd.org.uk

These items can be brought to All Saints’ or St Peter’s on Sunday mornings, or at other times by arrangement. Please only place unopened and in-date foods into the collections. Thank you.
