A grand total of 66 shoe boxes are on their way from Cottingley to the children of Liberia to open on Christmas Day! A very big thank you to everyone who donated a shoe box and to our Caring & Sharing group who organised our appeal.
St Michael’s 'All Sorts' group has been selected to be part of the Co-op Local Community Fund! Make sure you have a Co-op members card as you'll be able to help maximise the amount of funding All Sorts receives. Every time members shop at the Co-op, 1% of what you spend on selected own-brand products and services goes to the Co-op Local Community Fund. All Sorts will also receive a share of the money from sales of carrier bags. This funding round is open for the next 11 month

Mums, dads and carers can enjoy a cuppa, chat to friends or make new ones in
