• The officers and members of Council 493, based at St Paul’s, West Derby, wish to thank wholeheartedly those parishioners who responded so generously in donating more than 120 bags of food and toiletries to the collection of items for the local food bank, together with cash that will be used to replenish stocks as required. This is just one example of members of the KSC, their families and friends supporting their local food bank in providing the essentials for less fortunate individuals and families in the local community. Other KSC councils nationwide have taken part for the past two years in a ‘Reverse Advent Calendar’ campaign whereby parishioners daily bring food items to their church or community hall, which are then taken to local food banks for sorting and distribution.
• KSC Council 9 donated a cheque for £5,751 to the Whitechapel Centre for the Homeless on 14 December to complete another impressive fundraising effort via their annual sponsored walk. The Knights made the donation – to be boosted by approximately £550 from Gift Aid – at their Christmas party at Liverpool Cricket Club in Aigburth. Once again we would like to thank all the parishes that allowed us to distribute sponsorship envelopes and, of course, all the parishioners who donated so generously to this very deserving charity.
