Presents brought to yesterday's Gift and Toy service will be going to the main Action for Children Family Centre in Aylesbury who work not only with families in Aylesbury but several other centres in the villages around. At the service, Pauline Noble, our church's Action for Children Co-ordinator, reminded us why we hold this special service. " It is to give gifts to children and young people who may not have many, if any, toys waiting for them this year. Before we have also bought specialised presents for the Action for Children centre in Aylesbury for young people with special needs, and we hear they are desperately in need of some items so we'll also see if we can help there as well."
Pauline also thanked "the several ladies in the church who knit for the babies and under 3's — lots of lovely items for babies and toddlers including much needed hats, mittens and blankets for cots and push chairs." Pauline thanked everyone for their generosity on behalf of the children of Action for Children.

For the first time in 9 years the cost of sending a shoebox has...
