Presbyterian Support needs you! OCTACAN, now in its 9th year, takes place on Thursday 22 June; in addition to the call-out for cans, this year PSO is doing a street collection along George Street and at local supermarkets from 9.00 to 3.00pm. We are a looking for smiling volunteers to shake a bucket for and hour or so.  All funds donated on the day will go towards purchasing food for the foodbank throughout the year.  Money is very important to the foodbank as it allows us to buy perishable food, to supplement the tinned items we distribute.  
If you can give a little of your time on 22 June, please register by calling Jasmin Graham at 477 7115, or email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

Thanks for supporting PSO in this way.
