Thank You

Thank you so much to everyone who donated a shoebox this year to the Samaritans’ Purse Shoe box appeal. As a Church we collected 30 boxes, and I know some members of the congregation donated an online box too. It’s really great to be part of such a special Christmas appeal, sending our love around the world.

The boxes from the UK are being sent to Belarus, Albania, refugee camps in the Middle East, Central Asia and Nigeria.

I hope you will all receive your own personal email once the boxes have been delivered. Thank you. Jane Nicholls

Jumpers 4 Jimmy’s

The Charities Committee have launched the Jumpers 4 Jimmy’s Christmas appeal in support of Jimmy’s homeless shelter in Cambridge.

Please donate new or nearly new ladies and men’s jumpers to the box at the back of the church, or bring them along to our stall at the Christmas Bazaar.

We will also be accepting sleeping bags, toiletries and long life luxury Christmas food items. Thank you. Jane Nicholls

Christmas Bazaar – Saturday 4th December

We shall be needing bottles for the bottle stall, cakes for the teas and the cake stall, books, gifts and hampers for the Grand Draw. We shall also need people to help man the stalls. You have all been so very generous in the past and we are asking for your generosity once again. Please contact me if you think you can help. Jean Morgan

A Good Read

The bookstall at the Christmas Bazaar is looking for some stock! Donations may be left at the back of the church or delivered to 26 Post Street. Collections from your house are also possible if you give us enough time. Liz and Peter Irving (01480 382144) Peter.irving2
