Please help St. Petroc’s

St. Petroc’s Society is a Cornwall-based charity caring for the single homeless. Often they are sleeping rough and may have a range of difficulties including addiction, mental ill health, relationship problems or a differing lifestyle, which contribute to their homelessness and social exclusion. St Petroc’s exists to provide a diverse range of services for these particular clients.

We collect dried and tinned food for the Bodmin centre, which supports two houses in the town.  Please can you consider putting something extra into your weekly shopping basket for those less able to provide for themselves.  The collection bags are at the back of the church.

We can also take single bedding and clothing – especially men’s clothing.

Wild Willy Barrett’s French Connection: Avant-Garde Mangetout

Saturday 22 October, 8.00pm St Endellion Church

beach-cropped-lrFrom a cafe in Paris, via a hoolie in Dublin, to a night out in New Orleans with rip-roaring fiddle and banjo – this band does it all!   The group will be returning to St Endellion with their array of instruments in tow, following their highly successful appearance at last year’s book festival. The performance will highlight songs from their new album, ‘Avant Garde Mangetout’ and features French singer, Aurora Colson, who is known for her heart-rending performances of retro French Chansons and her wide jazz repertoire.

Aurora has seized the opportunity to spread her musical wings with the group in the variety of styles included on the album, which embraces diverse and mostly original material born of the Irish, French, American and old English musical roots of the members of the band.
