All We Can The collection taken at the Welcome Service for David and Vicci amounted to £418.27, which with money from the previous Saturday's coffee morning of £62.45 means a total of over £480 has been sent for the work of All We Can, the relief and development organisation of the Methodist Church formerly known as MRDF.  Thank you to everyone who contributed so generously.
