Find out more about Open Gate, a local charity that assists women released from Low Newton Prison by joining the Durham Martyrs and St Cuthbert’s Justice and Peace Groups at St Joseph’s Church, Gilesgate on Tuesday 20 September at 7:30pm after the 7:00pm Mass. Representatives from Open Gate will talk about their work. Everyone welcome.
The Justice and Peace group are holding a collection of unwanted / broken jewellery / watches to be recycled in support of Traidcraft. More than £16,000 has already been raised through this scheme which helps families in Bangladesh to grow tea and so provide themselves with an income that will feed their malnourished children for years to come. Please have a clear-out of old costume jewellery, gold, silver or watches that you don’t wear or need and bring them to church on Sunday 9 October.
