HELP NEEDED FOR VULNERABLE WOMEN

We are making weekly trips to the food bank at St Paul’s Church in Bath Road Hounslow to pick up supplies for some female asylum seekers, currently housed in Hounslow hotels. These women are intensely vulnerable, many with very young children and babies, and one is pregant, which means walking to the food bank is very difficult. The food provided by the hotel is not great, and they have no cooking facilities, so what they need most is fresh fruit and vegetables that need no cooking. Donations would be very gratefully received, either in church or directly to Shelagh Allsop. For more information, contact Shelagh on 07710 385839 or 020 8995 9390 or shelagh.allsop@gmail.com

HELP FOR REFUGEES

The lockdown has made it hard for all of us, but especially the very poorest in our society. Jesus always directed his ministry towards the most marginalised, challenging us to overcome prejudice and self-interest in the way we respond to situations that we cannot ignore. Rachel Tanner recently spoke in church about the work of the St Paul's Refugee Fund, and how you can help. You can read her talk by downloading the pdf below. And if you would like to donate to the fund financially, those details are also here.
