Action for Children Christmas Stall: Thanks so much to all who donated gifts and prizes and who helped us on the day! Our final total was £365.69!
Thank you also to everyone who brought new toys to the Toy & Gift Service last Sunday, and also for the money donations which we received. They were delivered on Monday to the Family Centre, who were delighted, for they will light up the eyes of many vulnerable children in the area who would otherwise have very little at Christmas. The Centre were also delighted with the many hand knitted baby garments, cot and pushchair blankets we took along as well. They remembered how gratefully they were received last year, so a big thankyou to all our ladies who knit.
