Toys, wrapping paper and cash were brought by members of the congregation to our annual Toy & Gift Service on Sunday. It will all be taken to an Action for Children unit in Aylesbury for matching up with children and young people there. The surplus will be distributed to other Action for Children units in Buckinghamshire. They all care for disadvantaged children and young people.
The charity challenges injustice and empowers children to overcome the obstacles in their lives that hold them back. It tailors its work to local circumstances, in partnership with children and young people, families, communities and local organisations. For their website, click here.
