Serving the Homeless

A big thank you to everyone who supported our ‘Italian Night with Magic.’ We made almost £800 on this event and have been able to purchase 25 sleeping bags, bag liners, bed rolls, pillows and pillow cases for the new night shelter that will be operating at Leigh Road Baptist Church from 1st December.
We invite everyone to our ecumenical Carol Service at Our Lady of Lourdes on Friday 16th December at 7pm, followed by mince pies and mulled wine in the Parish Centre. There will be a collection taken to support Southend YMCA projects, which help many young homeless youngsters in this town.  Thanks again for your continuing support.  Jo Ronan (Chairwoman, Serving the Homeless).
