Tea, coffee and biscuits will be provided on the day. Any remaining Covid safety rules will be adhered to and all gifts received will be donated to CAP (Community Awareness Programme) in Wakefield. CAP aims to help relieve the suffering caused by want and poverty in the Wakefield area and beyond, and to raise awareness of the problems of the needy in our community.
