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.
