The Kids say ‘Don’t forget to bring your Food Bank donations!’
Last Sunday we heard from our Children’s Chapel members. They had drawn posters and told us how important it was for Rosslyn Hill Chapel to continue to support the Food Bank in Chalk Farm. So let’s help to feed local people in crisis by donating any of the items from the list below and bring them along to Chapel next time you come.This is what the Food Bank wants:

  • Chopped tomatoes
  • Baked beans
  • Biscuits
  • Feminine hygiene products
  • Home cleaning products and sponges

….They have enough pasta and rice!
