Foodbank presentation

Sarah Broadbent recently presented a £500-00 cheque to John Jacobs, manager of Alton Food Bank, on behalf of the Tuesday ecumenical Coffee Morning held each week at Alton Methodist Church.

This was also an opportunity to introduce Alton Methodist Church's new minister, Rev Philip Simpkins and his wife, Angela, to regular coffee morning supporters like Jean Richards.

In the 11 years this Anglican & Methodist joint venture has been running, over £8,000-00 has been raised and donated to local charities — all from a cup of tea/coffee still at only 50p!
