Pauline Noble: November 2017
Christmas is approaching, and each year the congregation and youth organisations of our Church generously donate new toys and gifts, through Action for Children, to children and young people who would otherwise have very few, if any, presents. The Charity has a large Family Centre in Aylesbury and several smaller units in various towns and villages in the area, and are delighted that we will be able to provide presents for some of the many children in need on their books.
New presents for all ages are extremely welcome, and if you would like to help but are unable to purchase a present, a small cash donation in a sealed envelope will be very welcome. We will use this either for vouchers or towards a specialist toy for the special needs unit.
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 will be welcomed by the Charity in the huge job of wrapping presents.
Do come along on December 3rd to our 10.30am Toy & Gift Service and you will be very welcome.
