Reports from Organisations supported by Churches Together in Lichfield

Christmas Day Together. Maria Pavey, the 2017 coordinator, gave an oral report. She said that she, her husband and 2 girls took part which they enjoyed. Ruth Tinsdeall and her family did the cooking. In all there were 48 guests and 54 volunteers involved in one way or another – transport, preparation, table laying etc. On Christmas Day itself, there were the usual activities including a 5 minute God Slot by Lee Pavey. Everyone went home with goodie bag including a fridge magnet with a Bible verse, a calendar and lots of food. The total cost was £746, well within Budget.

Maria said that she has got everything together in a folder so the process is set up for the next coordinator. She observed that there should be a thought-through process in regards to safe-guarding, particularly for the drivers.

Rick Hill observed that this was a practical example of Christians working together and the prayer time was a witness in itself, particularly to the many volunteers who had come via the Volunteer Centre.

It was suggested that an appeal for the CDT coordinator should go out to the churches to put it on their newsletters, Sunday newsheets etc.

Memory Café. Linda Collins said that the Memory Café started on April 19th and was officially opened on May 24th in the presence of civic dignitaries. She thanked the Methodist church for hosting it and that all the volunteers are enjoying it. Home Instead are putting 2 professional workers in each week. She thanked CTiL for the donation. Currently the Memory Café is looking for people to give a one-off presentation – U3A members were suggested, also the Whittington community choir.

Late Night Listeners. Lilas Rawling gave a presentation using the usual LNL equipment and a jacket as visual aids. She encouraged people to think about volunteering to be a member of the team.
