St Faith’s Church Gaywood
St Faith’s Church are working with local supermarkets to create “Essentials Bundles” to support the people of Gaywood;- to deliver to people who are struggling because they can’t get to the shops and who do not have the support they need for whatever reason.
We are always on the lookout for any donations of food or hygiene items and if there is anyone out there who would like to join in with the deliveries, we would love to hear from them. Reverend Canon Julie Boyd, Rector for St Faith’s Church, Gaywood, King’s Lynn, PE30 4DZ. firstname.lastname@example.org (01553) 770952
North Lynn Methodist Church
Last week, we were very busy, making sure the large number of elderly folk in our churches were ok. We have a team of about 10 people who are ready and willing to do shopping for others so any agencies needing help for specific families in the North Lynn or Kings Lynn areas, please contact me on 01553 379142. I will deal with the money side of things (obviously cash only, and I will wear my dog collar so people know its genuine) but then I will share out the shopping itself.
