GUARDIANS OF ANCORA HOLIDAY CLUB


THERE ARE STILL SOME PLACES AVAILABLE, SO BOOK NOW!



Updated 9th July 2017


HOLIDAY CLUB CATERING: CAN YOU HELP?

During the Holiday Club week, we give the children some refreshments – juice and a small bite to eat. From past experience, home baking goes down a treat, so we would really appreciate donations of home baking (or, perhaps, biscuits) each day, along with donations of juice.
If you would like to help, please add your name to the list which you will find on the table in the Church vestibule.
Bearing in mind allergies, please do not include items containing nuts. Thank you.

Updated 2nd July 2017


HOLIDAY CLUB DRAMA: CAN YOU HELP?

We are looking for some big/tall artificial plants for the scenery in the Holiday Club drama. If you have anything which you think might fit the bill, they can collect from you and returned. It will only be a loan for a few days during the week of 7-11 August. Please contact this website if you think you have something suitable. Thank you.

THE SINGING GROUP

The Singing Group meets weekly throughout the year on Tuesday evenings at 7.45pm in Kirknewton Church for an hour of singing, laughter and fellowship followed by coffee and biscuits. Although primarily formed to rehearse the hymns for the Sunday services we also practise other music - spiritual, classical and popular. We aim to sing several pieces a year as a group at some of the important anniversaries within the Church, such as Easter and Christmas. We would love to welcome anyone who just likes to sing to come and join us any Tuesday evening.

WEST LOTHIAN FOODBANK (Reg Charity Number SC008274)

The organisers of the West Lothian Foodbank have informed us that they still have plenty of food on hand at this time. They would, however, greatly appreciate donations of the undernoted items:
Washing up Liquid; Toilet Rolls; Shaving Foam; Razors; Shower Gel; Deodorants; Nappies
These items can be left in the vestibule of either Church on Sunday mornings and will be delivered on your behalf.

As the Foodbank is very expensive to run, e.g. premises for storage, donations of money would be very gratefully received, in several ways shown on their website - https://westlothian.foodbank.org.uk/give-help
or, alternatively, you can pay directly into their Bank Account using a cheque or card in your Bank’s branch. The details you will need are: West Lothian Foodbank; Clydesdale Bank; Sort Code 82/70/05; Account no 80575476. If you can add your name as the reference this will really help them.
If you would prefer to send them a cheque, their address is: West Lothian Foodbank, 33 Market Place, Whitburn, West Lothian EH47 0EU.
