Vision for Action

Sue Ryder Care

St Mary’s Church, Potton, is proud to support the work of  St John’s Care Hospice at Moggerhanger by allowing a monthly Parish Lunch to be held in the Church Hall free of charge to the lunch organisers. This is usually at 12-45 on the last Friday of each month  and raises, on average, £3000 a year for the Hospice by providing a range of delicious Home Cooked Lunches to about 60 people, all for a very modest charge.
If you haven’t been to one of these lunches and want to know more about it or would like to help, please contact   Dave Thompson.

The Listening Place - Important
Enjoy a cup of Coffee,
      Cake or a biscuit, and a Chat.
This has been the Motto of the listening
Place since it was started  by Rev Jan
Bunday some time ago to help the lonely or
bereaved by Talking to them. As numbers have
dropped right off, it has been decided  to close the
group and the last session will be on December 17
at Jakes Court, starting at 10.00. Anyone who has previously come for any reason, is invited to join
us on the final morning.

A new monthly  event will start in the New Year.
