Jewellery Appeal – Have you ever lost a gold earring or cuff-link or broken a gold chain? Bet the apares and remains are lying in a jewellery box in your house and have been for years. Are they of any use? YES!! Would you consider donating these bits and pieces to the church? They could be put to very good use. If you can help just bring your lonely little treasures to church any Sunday and pop them into the box in the vestibule. They will make such a difference.
