Toy Drive.  We have decided to support this again this year. It is run by the Children and Families Social Work department in NE Fife.They would like unwrapped, new presents for children aged 0 to 18, who would otherwise be going without this Christmas.  All donations will be distributed in North East Fife. They aim to give each child, a book, a gift and stocking.  Last year they were short of certain things and have specifically asked HPM can helpknitted items again this year.  “It would be great to have a supply of blankets suitable for newborn –agewell as hats, booties, mittens,, etc. books and selection boxes.” There is a box at the back of the Church for donations from now until 30th

Storehouse.  Thanks in large part to the target response we received over the last few months we have new stock needs—washing up liquid, laundry soap, potatoes (tinned or dry mashed), nappies and tinned stew.  Thank you all so much!  We are doing something great!
