Trussell Trust Christmas Appeal 2017 
 
We want to help the Trussell Trust to ensure that local people in need, some spending Christmas  
on their own, will be able to enjoy the special foods that we take for granted. 
 
To support our appeal, please see our 
Helping in the Community page for details  
of the items we are particularly collecting this year. 
 
 
 
HARVEST 2017 
 
Thank you to everyone who donated food or money at the Harvest Festival service on 1st October.  
Due to your generosity we were able to deliver 90.1kg of food and £39 in cash to the Foodbank. 
 
This is in addition to our regular monthly collection - through which we have now donated an amazing  
5 tonnes of food since we started in 2006.  
 
THANK YOU AND WELL DONE! 
Goose Fair 2017 
A very big 
thank you 
to everyone who helped in so many different ways to make the Goose Fair such a success. 
 
The church looked wonderful, filled with crafts of every kind, home-made and home-grown 
produce, bygones, as well as the exhibition by the Downton History Group.  
 
The delicious refreshments were much appreciated, as were the children’s games and raffles. 
 
The day was enjoyed by visitors and helpers alike, and raised much needed funds for the church. 
 
Thank you one and all!
