The congregations of Teddington Parish responded generously to the call for help this Harvest Festival. Many items were donated at services on 25 September in support of Richmond AID, SPEAR, Richmond Foodbank (Vineyard) and Surplus to Supper.

Richmond AID posted: "A big THANK YOU 🙏to Robin & the team Teddington Parish for the fantastic range of toiletries given as part of their Harvest Sunday donations. Can't wait to give them out at our Surplus.2.U food stall tomorrow."

SPEAR have also been in touch to thank us for the generous harvest donations – partly used by the Outreach Teams who go in search of rough sleepers each night, and also for those they have found accommodation for to leave as welcome food in their cupboards.

Over £500 was also raised through collections at the services for the DEC's Pakistan Floods Appeal.
