The Harvest Service took place today, led by our minister, the Rev. Sharon Read. The Church supported two charities with their gifts, dried and canned food for the Food Bank in Middleton.
The second cause was for money donations to the Methodist charity, All We Can. All We Can support a group of Tonga people who live in the Binga district in the Zambezi valley and were forcibly displaced by the creation of Lake Kariba by the colonial government. With the support of All We Can, a group of ladies have been helped to deveope weaving skills and access markets to sell their baskets. As a result children are able to go to school, and goats can be bought for additional family income.
