Waterside Food Bank

We have received a big thank you from the Food Bank stating that St John’s have donated 368.6kg food in 2017/18, equivalent to providing 1141 meals!  In total, in 2017/18, the Waterside Foodbank have provided food for 2320 people which is fantastic, but sad at the same time. The details are on the noticeboard and there are also copies of the Newsletter there. Thank  you so much for your continuing support. Every small item counts and it is so needed. Jan
