The Glass Door Sleep Out for the homeless was on Friday 6 October. Maud Gambier-Ellis, Karen Mayne and Clare Groves are recovering and looking for sponsor money!
A Glass Door shelter for the homeless will be open on Friday nights this winter at St Barnabas, Southfields. The shelter is led by professionals but they need volunteers to help cook and provide supper and breakfast. If you can help, contact the administrator at St Barnabas, Claire Fox, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Wandsworth Society is holding a commemoration of Shirley Passmore at Le Gothique on Friday 20 October from 6.30 pm. All who knew Shirley will be welcome to join this celebration. As well as a buffet supper, there will be some tributes to Shirley, some readings and, we hope, music too – and there will of course be many reminiscences to be shared … and no doubt some laughter.
To cover costs, there will be a charge of £25 a head for the buffet supper and a ‘welcome drink’. Please book to attend no later than Sunday 15 October, with Caroline Pook at email@example.com (or phone her on 020 8870 4958). She will then notify you about the arrangements for payment.
Each year the PCC selects a charity to support with our Christmas collections. If you know a charity you would like us to consider do have a word with Gordon or one of the PCC (they’re the ones with the photographs on the notice board!). We generally like to support smaller charities rather than the national names, but causes have varied enormously over the years.
Are any children interested in joining the children’s choir? Have a word with Fr Gordon or phone Wendy Faulkner on 07764 604629.

Why is there scaffolding outside? The window frames have not been painted in decades. Luckily they have escaped rot but still there is much filling to do as well as painting. The big problem is the hoppers at the top of the drain pipes. At least one is leaking water against the wall, so they have reached the end of their time and need replacing.
