Alton Webteam: July 2015
Firstly, my apologies that this is rather later than usual as Michael and I have been away for 3 weeks holiday but I hope that it won't be too late for those of you who have an August edition of your church magazine.
As mentioned last month, the list of recipients will be drastically reduced as the Methodist Women in Britain groups across East Anglia move on to their next charity project. I am very aware of the generosity in terms of time and giving that has been such a blessing to Turning Point for the last 2 years and on their behalf want to say thank you so much for all your efforts, they have been greatly appreciated as you will hear at the next District Day. However, I'm also aware that there are individuals who have been supporting and some of these folk have contacted me. If anyone else wants to still receive the monthly news please let me know before August 9th.
When we know the final figure I will contact all those on the current list so everyone knows the result. Please keep the work in your prayers because, as you will see from this month's story, lives are being transformed.
God bless you all,
