“One Can” Donations;
Many thanks to all who continue to generously donate to the One Can Collections ( collected weekly on Fridays a.mfrom church porch ). Having witnessed the organisation at first hand at the distribution point in High Wycombe it is a highly impressive operation staffed entirely by volunteers. These same volunteers continue to distribute to those in need all day, 5 days a week, throughout High Wycombe.

( do bear in mind how many of us are in the “ qualifying” age bracket … ). From all accounts this has been…and still is… a most impressive, well organised operation.
THE COVID BEAST IS STILL OUT THERE…EVEN IF YOU HAVE HAD YOUR ‘JAB’COVER UP AND MAINTAIN THE SPACE.
