Maddie, our lovely administrator Sarah’s daughter, has created this brilliant:

FUN CHESS COURSE FOR KIDS!

If you have children at home looking to learn something new, she’s selling it both for a bit of extra pocket money, but also to give 50% of anything she makes to 

Herts Young Homeless,

 a charity based in Hertfordshire, which provides support and practical help for young homeless people, and those at risk of becoming homeless. It’s fun, interactive and informative, and is aimed at 7-10 year old’s, although it may be suitable for others too (we enjoyed it!). A chess board at home is not necessary for the course.

The course is £8 (£4 per sale donated to Herts Young Homeless) and comes in .pdf format.

It can also be personalized (at no extra cost) with your children(s) names! in the documents (but not the videos). 

Email sarahjn1977@gmail.com if you’d like to buy,

 

We bought it for our grandchildren and they love it!

Further to our Together in Barnet's Guest Homeless staying in our Parish Hall, please read the below letter from Amanda, with her urgent request for volunteers. Maybe some of our older teenagers and younger people might be willing to volunteer to help:

Dear Together in Barnet volunteer

 

Firstly, thank you for all your support. Together in Barnet still have a massive amount of work to do to support the Barnet Homeless community that are now in temporary accommodation. To this end we are now working even more closely with our partner charity Homeless Action in Barnet (“HAB”) to create a support network for all of the people who have recently been housed.

 

This is a large undertaking and in order to do this and to be able to swiftly react to the rapidly changing situation we now need, even more than ever, to call on our resource of amazing volunteers. Therefore, we need your help. 

 

If you are willing to volunteer to help us, please can you urgently provide the following information to Amanda Weiss (Operations Manager of Together in Barnet)  atamanda@togetherinbarnet.org .

 

1.     First Name

2.     Surname

3.     Mobile number (landline if no mobile)

4.     Email address

5.     Which Shelter venue or volunteer community are you associated with

6.     Consent to be added to the Together in Barnet database 

7.     Consent for your information to be passed to Homeless Action in Barnet who are coordinating logistics

 

We require this information to allow us to quickly deploy willing and able volunteers where they are needed the most. This is a very fluid situation and the type of help needed will change depending on what is required.

 

Thank you for your continued support.

 

Best wishes and stay safe.

The coronavirus outbreak threatens not only to jeopardise the health of a region, but of the world. It has shown us that our futures are bound more tightly together than ever before.

In times of crisis, more so than any other time, it is the poorest, most vulnerable and marginalised who are at greatest risk. We must respond quickly.

The poorest will be worst affected

Keep us, good Lord,
under the shadow of your mercy
in this time of uncertainty and distress.
Sustain and support the anxious and fearful,
and lift up all who are brought low;
that we may rejoice in your comfort
knowing that nothing can separate us from your love in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Amen.

 

Please take care, be safe, and be wise – and let’s all put others

ahead of ourselves.

Go with God and may the peace of the Lord be with you all

 

Our very best love to you all,

Rev. Tim & Mrs. Vicar
