In particular they'll be gathering donations and useful items for Lancaster Women’s Shelter [see list of useful items below].
Sunday Assembly is a non-religious group that meets once a month to hear short inspiring talks, sing secular (non-religious) songs together, drink tea and eat cake (please feel free to bake / bring cake to share :-), and to build a community – families are welcome.
It's a cultural phenomenon started in London by stand-up comedians Sanderson Jones and Pippa Evans. The Sunday Assembly motto is: Live Better, Help Often, Wonder More. Anyone is welcome – and the content is purely secular (no references to god), but people of any religion are also invited to join.
To find out more visit their facebook page www.facebook.com/SundayAssemblyLancaster or call James on 01524 35757.
List of particularly useful items for Women's Shelter:
- Second hand women's clothes
- food treats such as biscuits, chocolates
- shampoo, conditioner, shower gel, bubble bath,
- unwanted birthday and christmas pressies (not wrapped as they will unwrap everything when it arrives so they can give it to the most appropriate person)
-seconds hand pans, plates, bowls, cutlery, towels, single bedding
- new underwear (all sizes and styles!)
- new nightwear
- new gifts for children such as children's bubble bath, colouring sets etc, (no second hand children's toys)
From October (19) onwards the Assembly will meet at the Gregson at 11am on the third Sunday of every month.
