Christmas Generosity

A huge thank you to all who came along to support The Children’s Society at our Christingle Service at St Finnbarr’s last Sunday. The sight of everyone’s faces aglow in the candlelight was extremely special. Our four part guest choir sang unaccompanied so beautifully, as did our trio of boys who sang Away in a Manger for us.

The special collection for The Children’s Society totaled £301.86. Thanks to all our readers, congregants, our organist and those who gave but could not make it to the service. Our contribution will I am sure make a difference!

In related news – we received the following in an email from Tain Food Bank – again, thanks to all you generous, lovely people.

Just a short email to say ‘thankyou’ to you and all at St Finnbarrs for the very generous donation of food and money for the food bank today. 

The weight of the food came to 27.2kg and the £100 will be used to either buy food that we get short of or to help people out who find themselves in fuel poverty.

I cannot tell you in simple words the difference this donation will make to many lives this Christmas time and into the New Year.

Please pass on our sincerest thanks to all concerned.

Every Blessing 

Mandy & the food bank team
