CATHOLIC CLOTHING GUILD I am pleased to report that I took to the Guild A.G.M. in Newmarket 354 Garments and Knee Blankets, for various charities, with donations and subscriptions of £84.60. Thank you for all your support. Michael Howling from the S.V.P. told the A.G.M how in 50 years the help offered had changed, but that emphasis had always been on supporting families. That the one thing the S.V.P. could give, that professional agencies could not, was time. He thanked the Guild for their support over the years. Diane Stanley, Secretary.

Weekly Collection: Loose £158.00, Gift Aid £239.20, Total £397.20. Our weekly need is about £500. 1/3 of our money goes to the Diocese. Please plan your giving before Mass and be as generous as you can. If you pay tax please covenant, as we receive another 28p in the £1. For more details contact Covenant Officer John Morling on 01328 700575.

I am always available to visit you at home, bless the house etc.

Fr. Tony Webb.
