Fr SILVESTER This Sunday & for the next few weeks, the parish will be collecting medical-related items for Fr. Silvester’s health clinic in Uganda. The type of items needed are spectacles, hearing aids, clinical uniforms (male and female), syringes, dental and surgical equipment such as callipers, forceps, bandages and plasters, clinical thermometers, stethoscopes, insulin meters, pulse oximeter and surgical gloves. Larger items, such as ultrasound scanners (general and antenatal), x-ray machine, patient monitoring machine, oxygen concentrator, complete blood count machine, oxygen tanks, and a medical refrigerator are also needed. Does anyone have contacts that could help with sourcing this equipment? If so, please contact a member of the Justice and Peace Group. Visits from doctors and nurses to the clinic would also be very welcome; please speak to a member of the J&P Group. Please leave items in boxes each end of the church

LIVE SIMPLY Tip of the Week Make friends with your freezer. Four out of ten British shoppers throw perfectly good food away from their freezer because they can’t remember what it is. Get in the habit of labelling, to cut waste and save yourself money. Provided by Friends of the Earth http://www.foe.co.uk
