Give from the heart—save a life! is the motto for the Club 55+ campaign to raise money for the purchase of a defibrillator.

The club is asking for donations of re-gifting items, such as china, silver, jewellery, or small household items. These items will be sold and raffled off to help buy an automatic external defibrillator for the parish.

Donations can be dropped off in the parish hall before or after all weekend Masses on November 15/16, and at the Live, Learn, Laugh and Lunch get-together on Thursday, November 20.
