 Neighbour 2 Neighbour Appeal (AKA Potato Day):

The Annual Howard Atkin Appeal for Neighbour 2 Neighbour will be held on Sunday, November 20th, 2022. This annual event is in memory of Howard Atkin – a beloved former member of St. Andrew’s, who was our last WW2 veteran who saw active duty. Howard began this appeal by asking for bags of potatoes, but today the needs of Neighbour 2 Neighbour are best met by a special offering. If you use regular offering envelopes just write “Potato Day” on the Special Fund line. Otherwise, you can simply use a guest envelope in the pews. To learn more about Neighbour 2 Neighbour go to https://www.n2ncentre.com/
