CHURCHGOERS in Nailsea are urging people to dig deep and help fill up boxes of food to send to people in Eastern Europe.Holy Trinity Church has joined forces with other churches, schools and local organisations in Nailsea to run the annual Harvest for the Hungry Appeal.The appeal has run every year since 1998 and has sent thousands of food parcels to Eastern Europe, particularly Romania where the Nailsea team has a special link.Over the last two years the town has returned the second highest response to the appeal in the whole of the UK and sent off a massive 1,096 boxes in 2006.Harvest for the Hungry Team spokesman Barry Mead said: "This was a wonderful achievement given the size of Nailsea compared to many other places, so we are urging people to do their bit to help us keep this magnificent record going for another year."Donations of either items for the boxes or a cash donation to cover the costs of sending the boxes over must be received by October 17.
