Great Greggs news! We are now receiving donations of food from Greggs’ shops in Chesterfield. Our volunteers call at the shops at the end of the day and they kindly donate items of food that will not keep to the next day. This means that our guests on the bus can tuck into sausage rolls, pasties, and pastries. This is in addition to the sandwiches that we provide. It makes such a difference to have extra food to give out, and everyone appreciates a wider choice. We are so grateful to this support and are very thankful to Kelly and Karen in particular.
Our Chairman John Phillips has received an email from Wendy Fitch, the Mothers’ Union Diocesan President for Derby Diocese. Wendy says that the Mothers’ Union would like to support the work of the Church on the Bus Project. They are suggesting that they would like to purchase toiletries for the people who visit the Bus.
This is wonderful news that the Mothers’ Union are giving their support to Church on the Bus. Watch this space for more information!
Great news! The Give for Good shop in Swanwick has donated 5 sleeping bags to Church on the Bus. Many thanks to Amy and all the folk at the shop. Thanks also to Ann Cleaver for going and picking them up for us.
The Give for Good shop takes in donations of furniture, electrical goods, clothing etc and sells them to raise money for a number of good causes. The shop is on Derby Road in Swanwick, near Alfreton.
