In this time of heightened need, the Society of St Vincent de Paul has been looking for ways to help those who may be struggling. When were asked to host a Food Bank at St Joseph's therefore, this was a good opportunity to serve.
Our parish conference of the SVP, together with the SVP based at More House, the University chaplaincy, assembled a group of over 20 volunteers, who cleaned and painted the hall at St Joseph's last Saturday.
There is still more to be done, in fitting storage cupboards and new curtains, but we hope that the Food Bank will start on 3rd November, and open each Thursday. More volunteers to help to serve are always welcome.
