Super Soup Lunch: Christian Aid Week this year is from Sunday, May 12 to Saturday, May 18, so Helen and Nigel will be holding their annual Super Soup Lunch on Saturday, May 18 at Barnstones, New Road. Enjoy delicious home-made soup and roll and good company in support of Christian Aid and we look forward to welcoming you on May 18. Helen will also soon be contacting her usual collectors, but more are always welcome. The more collectors the more money we can raise.
