The SVDP is still working away in the background helping those in need during
these very difficult times. It may be a call for food or essential items, or for a few pounds to those who come to the church door. If you would like to make a donation here is how to do it –

St Peter’s please put an envelope through the presbytery letterbox. Thank you once again for your generosity.
