The Guild

13th to 20th November 2016 is Guild Week. 

Here at St John’s we are taking part in the project ‘SMALLS FOR ALL’ smalls-for-all-logo

SMALLS FOR ALL collects and distributes underwear from Scotland to women and children in Africa. It helps those living in orphanages, slums, Internally Displaced Person camps and schools, as well as providing underwear to hospitals to help those suffering from medical conditions like obstetric fistula. Underwear is a luxury some people can not afford.

Here is the brief if you would like to donate underwear:

  • Buy pack of ladies’ or girl’s pants
  • Must be NEW
  • Aged 3 –> 15 for girls
  • Sizes 8 –> 16 for ladies

Place donation into box in Sanctuary, contact a guild member, hand into the church or telephone 07904617283

The Guild meets every Tuesday in the large hall from 2pm.
