Cyrenians gratefully received donations of Harvest Festival produce again this year from Balsall Common Methodist Church who kindly donated food items at their socially distanced Harvest Festival. The families of Church members and scout organisations dropped off donations outside the church at different times during the morning.

We also received a cash donation and several other people donated online which totalled an amazing £150.00, plus a donation of knitted scarves from a local Slimming World Group who are also members of the church. 

Unfortunately due to Covid-19 there was no official service this year but they had the brilliant idea to put a table outside the church where there were booked time slots for people to donate items in carrier bags. These were left on the table and only handled by Andy Braund (Cyrenians Assessment and Duty Worker) and his wife Rev Jane Braund who very kindly took them in their car. Maria Struthers (Senior Housing Support Worker) also attended to thank people dropping them off.
