A huge thank you to everyone who brought toys, gifts or donations to the Gift & Toy service on 6th December. As always the response to our appeal was amazing, and from the money gifts we were able to purchase vouchers suitable for teenagers and also, as requested by the Action for Children centre in Aylesbury for children with special needs, some Argos vouchers to enable them to select items they need. Our Minister and Pauline Noble filled their cars to the brim with all the presents and visited delighted staff at the Aylesbury Family Centre. Thanks also go to those who knitted blankets, hats, mittens and clothing for under-3s. These were also taken with the gifts to the Centre.
