  • OLD MOBILE PHONES, USED INK CARTRIDGES, COINS - St Elizabeth Hospice can recycle/reuse these to raise funds for their vital work. If you have any items to donate, they can be left in St Andrews office

GLOBAL CHURCH PRAYER: Pray for the evangelists who have just completed a 3 month leadership course at KCTC in Tanzania. Pray that they will be good leaders of their churches as they face so many challenges back home.

LEISURE CLUB@ST ANDREW'S : VOLUNTEER NEEDED. Leisure Club provides an opportunity for older people who are socially isolated in our community to meet together. We meet fortnightly on a Tuesday (10am –2pm) but volunteers are not expected to attend every session. If you would like to know more about volunteering then contact Liz Cade on 07936 380127.

SAFEGUARDING TRAINING : As I’m sure you are all aware anyone with a voluntary role within MIE is required to complete Safeguarding training to a minimum level (C0) - thank you to all those who have already done so. If your training is still outstanding, please ensure this is completed urgently and email confirmation to safeguarding@mie.org.uk. If you have any queries, please contact me. Thank you. Liz Constance.
