VILLAGERS have been urged to help people in need by donating tins of food.

St Michael’s Church in Heighington is now being used as a tin collection point for the foodbank led by King’s Church in Darlington.

Tins donated at the church will be passed to the foodbank’s local centre at St Mary’s Church in Cockerton, where food parcels will be prepared for distribution to those struggling to feed themselves.

For more information or to report someone in need of support, contact the Pastoral Team on 07919 343 141.

You will probably find -as with nineteenth century philanthropy that 'the rich' (as you would no doubt term them) will do more than needed., I suspect that the quality of produce now given to those who cannot afford to buy their own food - will be at least as high as much of that hitherto donated. Once more, 'the rich' will pay more tax, give more charity, and do more than their fair share... and yet the old cumudgeons will continue to grumble 'at the rich'. Thank god people such as those in Heighington do exist - otherwise not enough tax would be paid to given even half the level of present benefits dolled out to those who do (and do not) deserve it.
