Mentoring for The Family Trust
There is a growing demand for mentoring in Maidstone Secondary Schools... and before you say "no, I'm not qualified"… no experience is necessary, and all training is provided. After that its an hour a week, to listen to a young person. Simple, yet highly effective. Our local children need our support more than ever. More details can be found at www.familytrust.org.uk/mentoring where you can also apply by clicking the Volunteering button, or speak to Andy Haines. Thank you.
Salvation Army Food Bank
The Salvation army have used all the harvest and Christmas donations and would appreciate more food donations but NOT pasta, soup, or jam as they have a large quantity of these. Please put donated food in the box in the porch or if you would prefer to give a cash donation please place in an envelope and mark on the front Food Bank and hand it in at church. Thank you.
