Lisa has been staying with Jim and Annabel. Please would you pray for her as she does her GCSEs which won’t be easy as she has only been learning English since last autumn! Lisa would like to borrow a ladies bike to get around town. If you have one in your shed, please would you get in touch with Jim or Annabel.
Windwhistle School early years classes are after items for their home corners. They would like crockery, cutlery, jugs, pans etc.... in fact anything you find in a kitchen. They would also like a microwave (it can be broken) as the children love pretending with that.
The whole school are also after items to be used at the lunchtime outside play project. They are looking for anything that can be used to make dens like old sheets, tarpaulins, curtains etc...
If you have anything, then please let Caroline know. Thank you.
