Welcome

Welcome to St Bert’s Church, Norton Parish

FOODBANK
The Runcorn and District and the Widnes foodbanks are still providing food and other things to those in need currently but donations to them may be lessened by people isolating and/or panic buying in the shops meaning that stocks there are low. As an alternative could you please consider giving a money donation which they can use to purchase supplies. You can send a cheque for a one off donation or you can go onto their websites and raise a standing order to give regularly (don’t forget to fill in the gift aid form too if appropriate) or, if you are allowed out at the moment, if you are passing their offices, you could make a cash donation, in an envelope marked Foodbank.

Runcorn and District – cheques to be made to Runcorn and District Foodbank. Cash and/or cheques, in an envelope, to be given to Runcorn and District Foodbank, c/o Holy Spirit Catholic Church, Fernhurst, Halton Brook, Runcorn. WA7 2NJ. You can post cheques to there too. Website address for making regular or other donations is runcorndistrict.foodbank.org.uk click on give help then click on donate money.
Thank you very much – please help in this way if you can.
