Dear friends

I have been given a letter from the Revered David Brown, who had been the Vicar of St Peter’s in Scorton, but is now the Anglican Chaplain to the English Church in Warsaw, Poland, and he writes:

As you know, over a million refugees have arrived herein Poland in the last 10 days.  We are now getting requests for help from refugees and, also, from those who are opening their homes and yet don’t have the money to buy all that is needed.  Everyone, not only the refugees, but the Polish people around us are confused, bewildered, frightened and traumatized.

Our Chaplaincy is small but we need to give help where we can.  We have agreed to use all donations we receive, as well as Chaplaincy funds, to help individuals, families and organisations by giving immediate money and financial help.  We are really grateful to those who have been in touch to offer support – thank you.  If you would like to help us, you may like to make a donation by Bank Transfer to the Church’s account in British pounds:

Bank:     Barclays Bank plc

Account Name:     Diocese in Europe Fund

Bank sort code:     20-06-13

Account Number:     40317039

In Memo Line:     Warsaw Chaplaincy Ukraine Relief

I am aware that both Bare and Wesley had a separate offering last Sunday for the Disasters Emergency Fund, and for that I am most grateful for that, please remember that the service at Torrisholme was cancelled last week, but it may be that over the next couple of weeks, you may decide to want to support this as well, and send the monies directly please.

Thank you in advance.

With every blessing

Roy Burley

Minister Bare, Torrisholme and Wesley Methodist Church
