Big Thanks from The Brick and a message from Keely Dalfen
To everyone at All Saints, thank you so much for your generous donation of cash and non perishable food items for our Food Bank. Your support goes a long way to helping those in our community who are struggling. On 1st November the charity took over St George’s church in Wigan under the ‘No First Night Out’ scheme which is now providing a safe place to sleep for everyone in need, every night throughout the winter months. Please keep praying for us as we continue to move in the right direction towards a full 24/7 provision for our homeless. God Bless from all the Staff, Volunteers and Trustees.

Aviva Community Fund Update
Results in the ‘Skills for Life’ category were announced recently and unfortunately we weren’t successful in our bid for £9000 for new IT equipment.
However, we are very happy (and grateful!) to announce that the Aviva Community Fund has awarded us £500 in recognition of our efforts, which we will use along with our normal fundraising to fund some new laptops.
Congratulations to those projects that did win… and we’ll be sure to try again in future years. We’ve learnt a lot from this process and will be looking into other grants/ schemes like this to help bolster our efforts.
If anyone is interested in helping out with these grant applications or our general fundraising (we have lots coming up – watch this space!), please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks again for all your support with our bid.
