Charity of the Season:

Leeds Northwest Food Bank


“The foodbank was there when we really needed it, it was an absolute lifeline.”

We don’t think anyone in our community should have to face going hungry.

That’s why we provide three days’ nutritionally balanced emergency food and support to local people who are referred to us in crisis. We are part of a nationwide network of foodbanks, supported by The Trussell Trust, working to combat poverty and hunger across the UK.


The Archbishop of Canterbury has criticised Amazon. “I was in business, and I know that, within limits, it is right and proper for people to arrange their tax affairs.  But when vast companies like Amazon, and other online traders, can get away with paying almost nothing in tax, there is something wrong with the tax system.”


Amazon said that its new minimum wage will benefit more than 17,000 Amazon employees and 20,000 seasonal employees who will be hired in the run-up to Christmas.

Several people have enquired about Confirmation.  If this is something that you might be interested in, or if you know someone who would like to know more, please get in touch with Tony, Angela or Jan Kramer.
