24th February to 4th March 2014 is FairTrade fortnight.
Fairtrade is all about improving trade for farmers in developing countries by ensuring they get better prices and good working conditions. Fairtrade helps improve their lives and prevent discrimination against poorer producers. When you are shopping why not look out for the FairTrade logo and buy one FairTrade product instead of your usual brand. All ready using a FairTrade product? Then please recommend it to a friend.
Valentine’s Day is past, but February is National Heart Month and the British Heart Foundation wants to encourage us all to have our blood pressure checked, to aim to keep fit and manage what we eat.
Think about raising funds for the BHF Mending Broken Hearts campaign, maybe by having a ‘Wear Red to Work’ day.
On 22nd February each year the World Girl Guide and Girl Scout Association encourages members to be thankful for everything that they have and to think about their sisters worldwide who may not be so fortunate.
Part of the World Thinking Day activities is to raise funds for causes that support the United Nations Development Programme aims: to end poverty, encourage education for all, fight disease, protect the environment, pursue democracy and empower women.
The theme for World Thinking Day 2014 is “Education opens doors for all boys and girls”. Let us all be thankful for what we have and encourage our children and grandchildren to take advantage of the excellent education opportunities here in Tonbridge.
All men welcome! Breakfast can be anything from a bacon roll and a cup of coffee to a Full English or more usually something in between.
It’s a chance for guys to get together and talk about this and that, life in general and after the eating is done, for those who can stay there is a short time of prayer.
Meet men from this church, men from other local churches, regulars from our cafe, passersby – whoever happens to turn up.
Mens’ prayer breakfast happens every month – but it is a moveable feast! Check The Messenger magazine to find out the date for next month or leave an email address or contact number so we can keep you up to date. See you Saturday!

Please also consider supporting local charities who support those who find themselves homeless including ~The Bridge Trust – who are always happy to receive donations of furniture at their warehouse in Cannon Lane, as well as electrical and other household items.
Please also remember to take a look at the Furniture Warehouses (Bridge Trust & YMCA Furniture project) at Cannon Lane where there are many bargains to be found. Take a look at their newly up-cycled furniture in dove grey, duck egg blue or Georgian green – but hurry it’s going fast. Seen something of interest? Why not ask them about up-cycling it for you to suit your colour scheme.
