Thanks to your generosity the donations received exceeded our targets.
Our shopping list went .....
  • 50 Christmas Puddings – more than
  • 20 bottles of Shloer - more than
  • 50 Birds Custard Cartons – more than
  • 50 Chocolate Mints – more than
  • 20 Boxes of 6 Mince Pies – Millions more than
  • and more than 100 packets of Crisps.
Along with donations from other groups over 1,500 hampers were delivered to those in need.

Last year we joined in with this initiative organised by Urban Outreach and your response was magnificent. 
It meant such a lot to people who would have really struggled to enjoy a good Christmas dinner for all sorts of reasons. 
The PCC have decided to back the project again and so we are appealing this year for:
  • 50 Christmas Puddings (non- alcoholic if possible)
  • 50 Custard Cartons (500 g)
  • 50 Boxes of Chocolate Mints (200g)
  • 20 Boxes of 6 Mince Pies (Check Best Before Date)
Very many thanks.

Fantastic number of donations brought to church for this appeal.
Already all the bottles of Shloer and packets of Crisps have been donated.
