CHRISTIAN AID WEEK Last Sunday’s Soup Lunch was a huge success, and thanks are in order to all who helped –  the organisers, those who contributed in any way to the provision of delicious food, servers, kitchen ‘maids’  and everyone who supported the occasion with their presence.  Thanks to very generous donations the grand total of £267.28 was raised, a wonderful way to launch Christian Aid Week in Ferintosh.

Film quiz sheets are still available at the rear of the Church, as are donation envelopes.

IDEAS REQUIRED – Can you help? The Social Group plans to meet soon to organise some social activities and fund raising events. It would be helpful to have some new ideas to consider. e.g.

-Would you like to see certain events repeated, such as the Soup Lunches and Beetle Drive?

-Do you know perhaps of someone who would be an interesting speaker for our Soup Lunches?

-Do you have any suggestions for events we haven’t tried yet?

-Would you be willing to organise an event?

These are just some thoughts! If you can help in any way with this, please have a chat with Janet Murray. Many thanks.
Guild Eleven members from Hamilton Bardrainey Guild are travelling north for an overnight visit to Ferintosh on Wednesday 8th June. Ferintosh Guild are planning to join them for High Tea in the Conon Hotel that evening at 5.30pm. The cost of this will be £11. It would be really good if as many members as possible could attend this outing. Please sign up on the sheet at the back of the church as soon as possible to allow the Guild team to know the numbers to be catered for. We also plan to attend the River Café in the afternoon that day. Please could Guild members try to boost the baking that day!

Ross Tain Presbyterial Council have asked that this notice should be passed on regarding their forthcoming Rally. The Rally will be held on Tuesday 14th June at 7.30pm in Rosskeen Church, Alness. The speaker is Richard Sulu from Malawi, and he will speak about his work there. They would love to have us there. Speak to the Guild Team if you fancy going and we can arrange to go together.

Highland Foodbank Laura Ferguson of the Foodbank thanks us all for our generous donations and support over the last few years. At the end of April figures show, the Foodbank has helped 5826 people, yet another increase of people in our area requiring help of basic foodstuffs. They are asking that in June/ July we could collect/ donate the following items – Orange Juice (long life), tinned ham, corned beef, sugar and sweet biscuits. These are the items that are currently desperately required. Thank you in anticipation of your usual generous response.
