Thank you to all who donate to Bassetlaw Food Bank.  

 

The Retford shop is currently closed, although food bank staff are busy working with other agencies to get food out to those who need it.

 

When it reopens we will need your help to refill the shelves.

Spring Plan

******************** Spring Term 2019 ********************

Advent food bank collection

The Mini Vinnies thought about people in the parish and the wider community of Retford, who are unable to take part in preparations for Christmas due to illness, disability or loneliness. They asked the Prayer Chaplains to lead the school prayers for them during Advent and the Mini Vinnies made cards for parishioners to take to those they visited and tell them of the prayers.

Food collected for the Bassetlaw Food Bank October 2018

The Mini Vinnies are working as Playground Buddies each day
