How to support our local community groups this Christmas
Look out for the 'giving table' at the back of the church.
Send greetings to all your church family friends without having to write piles of Christmas cards or spend on postage - a new twist to the SMoB Christmas card!
This Advent we are collecting requested items for our community partners, Besom and the York Road Project. Rather than a donation of money to a nominated charity, please donate any of the following in the supplied containers, and don't forget to sign the Christmas card! Thank you to Mike, Marta and family for making the card.
York Road Project
small packs which can be given straight to clients and made up by pastorates:
These could include items such as:
boxer shorts or ladies pants (25% of clients are female)
Christmas card saying a few words of encouragement and care
or loose items:
scarves, sleeping bags, thermos mugs and anything else which would be of benefit during the winter months. Wash items such as shampoo or shower gel are not
necessary as these items are already covered and tend to get left as they add weight to a ruck sack.
Thank you very much for your generous support - please note that the Christmas Foodbank and Besom collections have now closed and been dropped off.
