Paul Higgins has asked us to do some fundraising on the two Sundays after 2 July which is 'Action Mesothelioma Day'. Mesothelioma is a form of cancer usually caused by breathing in asbestos dust. It is what Paul is suffering from at the moment. HASAG (Help, Advice, Support, Action, Guidance) is a charity dedicated to helping people suffering from asbestos-related diseases and their families throughout the South of England, South East, London and Home Counties. Paul would like us to fundraise for HASAG & there is a collecting jar at the back of church. All the money we collect will be sent directly to HASAG.
