Oxfam Fashion Show
7.30pm on Friday 4 October at Wetherby Methodist Church
To celebrate Secondhand September (only a few days late), Oxfam Wetherby is putting on a fashion show of highly desirable and fashionable pieces for all ages.
This show is a great opportunity to support Oxfam, see what they've got to offer, and transform your wardrobe (a bit).
Please come along and support the team. There will be refreshments and a raffle to add to the fun. Tickets, obtainable from the Oxfam Shop or on the door, cost just £5, and children go free.

Prisons Week service
6.30pm (arrive by 6pm) on Tuesday 15th October at HMYOI Wetherby
Everyone is invited to join in this special service. The guest speaker is Allen Langham (right), author of 'Taming of a Villain'.
A former professional rugby league player with a promising future, he threw it all away for a life of drink, drugs and organised crime, and eventually found himself in prison. In 2013 Allen had a dramatic encounter with Christ and became a born-again Christian.
Allen will share his powerful testimony - a true story of journeying from darkness to light.
To register to attend, please contact Andrew Marshall, 01937 573167 or email firstname.lastname@example.org, by Thursday 10th October at the latest.
Please note the security issues:
Churches Together Community Prayers
9.15am, Wednesday,October 2 in the Quiet Room at Wetherby Methodist Church, Bank Street
These monthly meetings take place on the first Wednesday of every month.
This is a great opportunity to meet with other Christians from around the town to pray for our community, and to enjoy a coffee and fellowship afterwards in the coffee lounge, although that's not obligatory, of course.
Transport for Victims of Modern Slavery
It is estimated that between 10,000 and 13,000 people are enslaved within the UK at any one time. They have been tricked, trapped and traded as if they were commodities: exploited and abused.
The Salvation Army provides support services for victims on adult trafficking (modern slavery) in England and Wales. Part of this includes providing transport to places of safety for victims, which is carried out by volunteer drivers and chaperones.
There is a constant need for additional volunteers, who are provided with support and online training, and are reimbursed expenses. If you would like to explore more about what is involved in helping these very vulnerable people, please read the leaflet on the right, or go to salvationarmy.org.uk/human-trafficking.
