COLLECTION FOR THE HOMELESS
For the last few years we have taken foodstuffs, etc. to Emmaus House in Acton which is a centre “a Beacon of Hope” for the poor, the marginalised and those who suffer from isolation or are homeless. It is a registered UK charity.
It seems appropriate to offer the things that are most needed both for the homeless and for Emmaus House to enable them to serve the homeless. They have suggested that the following items are the things that are most needed...........
Sugar Baked Beans Tuna Tinned Fruit
Cooking oil Orange Squash Ketchup Baked beans
Washing powder Washing up liquid Bleach
General cleaning items
If you feel that you would like to help and contribute something perhaps you would be good enough to bring them into the Vihara on Sunday, 14th May, VESAK DAY. There will be a couple of boxes on the stage with a label ACTON HOMELESS CONCERN. Please put any donations that you may wish to give into the boxes or in plastic bags.

You All are welcome
