FOODBANK NEWS

For the month of September, Binham provided 65.85 kg

of food out of a total for the Cromer District of 3708.04 kg.

Many thanks to all who contributed. Since September, we

have had a great contribution from the harvest collection in

the church and this will be reflected in the next report.

Additionally, we have had cash donations in the

collection box in the Chequers that have also helped to raise

further funds from the sales of our book. Special thanks to

all the staff there.

The collection box in Howell’s Superstore provides a

rich haul at every collection date. We are so grateful to

Trevor, Anita and Toby for keeping the box in such a

prominent place in the shop.

Christmas is coming; last reports stated that there are 4

million children living in poverty in this country and that

parents are having to choose “heat or eat” in order to feed

their families. Your continued help will do so much for

those in this situation in our area.

COCKTHORPE CHRISTMAS NEWS

It is that time of year again; summer is becoming a

distant memory, autumn leaves are falling and winter is

knocking on the door and the nights are drawing in.

Now is the time to start planning the annual Cockthorpe

Christmas Tree Festival. Last year we raised a magnificent

amount which enabled the NNUH Neo Natal Unit to

upgrade two incubators to provide intensive care for

premature babies. This may not seem much, but it is truly

lifesaving, the new born babies are fed and administered

drugs for all their needs without being taken out of the

incubator, so the risk of infection and disturbance is kept to

a minimum. Another huge upside is that two local babies

can be near home and family.

So I am again appealing to your goodwill and generosity

to come and support us.

You can do this in many ways: raffle prizes, donations,

sponsorship of a tree or decorating a tree which is provided

at the cost of the tree.

Most important we would love you to come and visit the

church which will be decorated with 24 small trees and an

abundance of fairy lights.

Please come and join us at All Saints Church

Cockthorpe NR23 1QS. Saturday 14 th and Sunday 15 th

December from 10am till 3.30pm.

The festival closes with our Carol Service; once again

led by the fantastic Cantilena Choir on Sunday 15 th at 3 pm.
