The apples in the back garden are ripening. Please pick these in due course to avoid them being wasted.

Manchester Brigade Annual Camp

Last Saturday the Manchester Church Lads and Girl’s Brigade having spent their Annual Camp at Dounans. The week started with the customary Parade Service at St Mary’s with a march back to camp accompanied by the band. This is the only time of the year that a Police escort is required for St Mary’s congregation after a service. During the week the rain fell and the midges bit, but nevertheless a good time was had by all. It was touching to be invited to attend some of the activities such as the midweek evening communion and the lowering of the regimental flag on the last day of camp.

Some years ago it was feared that numbers of recruits were dwindling, but happily there has been a resurgence of interest and record numbers attended camp this year.

Please remember in particular the officers and staff of the Regiment who willingly give their holiday to run the camp. This of course is the tip of the iceberg: there is a considerable weekly commitment as well. Many are also actively involved in the life of their own parish churches.

forgiving us those things of which our conscience is afraid
and giving us those good things  which we are not worthy to ask
but through the merits and mediation  of Jesus Christ your Son our Lord,
who is alive and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever.

Robin Willis of St Mary’s says:

For some time now I have wanted to do something to raise funds to support those whose lives and families are affected by cancer.

As you may know my parents, David and Jean Clark, each had cancer, my youngest brother is in remission from non-Hodgkin Lymphoma, and last Friday another of our close friends was diagnosed with breast cancer. It therefore seemed an opportune time to take action.  A few weeks ago I came across Macmillan’s Campaign to “Brave the Shave” and on Monday I am shaving my head.

My initial target was to raise £2,400, enough to fund a Macmillan nurse for over 100 hours,  but I have had fantastic support, both emotional and financial, from relatives, friends and colleagues  and am now hoping to raise £5k.

As you are probably aware, Macmillan Cancer Support assists people living with cancer (and their families) with essential medical, practical and emotional support and indeed I know from family and others, what a huge benefit this is.

I wanted to let you all know  what I am doing so that if you see me around, it does not come as too much of a shock and you know that I am not ill.

 

Should you want to make a donation or know more about what I am doing this is the link  https://bravetheshave.org.uk/shavers/robin-willis/
