Anglicare Food Drive
Anglicare provides material assistance to people in crisis. To support this work we’re collecting non-perishable food and toiletries such as:
- packets of pasta & pasta sauce
- chunky soup
- tinned protein (fish, tuna)
- long-life milk (1 Litre)
- tinned fruit & vegetables
- baked beans & tinned spaghetti
- baby wipes, toothpaste and women’s products
Donations can be dropped off at the gazebo outside the church entrance.
Coordinator: Margaret Icke.

Letterbox Cards for Neighbours
With stay-at-home orders in place, many of our neighbours might be feeling socially isolated, cut off from their usual supports, and finding it harder to manage the practicalities of life. A hand-written note or card offering help is a great way to offer support to your neighbours.
If you’re not sure what to write, here’s an example you could use:
Hello, my name is [your name] and I live at [house number and street]. Do you need help with anything at the moment? Perhaps someone to talk to? I wanted to leave this card to let you know that I’m more than happy to help out if needed. If you need a hand with grocery shopping, a pharmacy pick up, meals, someone to go for a walk with or anything else, please contact me on [phone number].
Alternatively, here’s a printable PDF version, just print on your home computer and write your name and contact info:
Why not take this opportunity to start an online chat group with the people in your street? The app “WhatsApp” is easy to use, secure and only requires a mobile number and smartphone.
