Christmas Food Parcels and Presents
With the Christmas Appeal we are very fortunate to have a lot of local community support and lots of toys were donated and dropped off at Tesco & Oldrids which were our main collection points. Names of needy families have been collated via Agencies such as Surestart, Women’s Refuge, Social Workers etc and on Monday (16th December) a team of 11 volunteers gathered to make up 100 food parcels and wrap presents for the toy sacks for the families. Most have now been delivered to the homes in time for Christmas and we are grateful to those volunteers who gave their time to make the whole Christmas Appeal run very smoothly! The photos make look chaotic but it was an organised chaos! Once again we are blown away by the generosity of the general public who trust us with their money and donations to make sure it goes into the right places. A huge thank you to those who donated or helped in any way – Christmas Appeal 2013 has been most successful.
