At the October U3A meeting, there was an overwhelming positive response from members to our speaker from the Whitechapel Mission and know many of you who were there were affected by the stories he told and the obvious unselfish dedication of Tony Miller and the mission staff.

In view of members response, the U3A Committee decided to implement a Christmas Appeal for the Whitechapel Mission.

We know they are desperate for many items and hope you will join us in donating something from the list. With Winter and the cold weather coming, anything you can give will really make a difference.

Baked beans Plum tomatoes Sugar Coffee Honey
Instant hot chocolate Porridge Tea Ketchup Breakfast cereal
Biscuits Squash Toothbrushes Razors Black woollen hats
Woollen scarves Socks Gloves

Please bring any donation to the next monthly meeting on 28th November and we can ensure it reaches the Mission by Christmas.

If you wish to donate but are not attending the U3A meeting please contact Jill Parr at Treasurer email contact.

Thank you so much for your support
