Pauline Noble: November 2016
Our Toy & Gift Service this year is on Sunday December 6th at 10.30am. Each year the congregation and youth organisations of this Church generously donate new toys and gifts to Action for Children. This year will be no exception and our toys and gifts will be going to children and young people in Bucks who are helped by the charity and who would otherwise have very few if any other presents. New presents for all ages will be extremely welcome, and if you would like to help but are unable to purchase a present, please put a cash donation in a sealed envelope and we will then purchase vouchers to suit teenagers. Please do not wrap your presents, as all items are matched to each child or teenager. Finally if you have any spare wrapping paper it does help the charity in the huge job of wrapping presents.
We hope that you will all feel able to support this service and give as generously as you are able. If you are not able to come to the service but would like to contribute, please contact Pauline Noble on 01296 484940.
