Members of St Mary’s Congregation have four ways of raising money for, and awareness of the Children’s Society: The annual Christingle Service, the sale of Christmas Cards and Gifts, the House Boxes, and direct giving to the Society.
- The Christingle Service organised by Joyce Lydford had been prepared by her and other helpers but sadly at the last minute because of Covid, the School Children and their parents had to cancel.
- The sale of Christmas Cards and Gifts organised by Catherine brought in £525.45 for the Society.
- The House Box opening was again delayed, later some boxes were opened and a further £ 594.00 brought in for the Society which will be increased by those who were able to Gift Aid their donations.
We don’t know how many people made direct contributions or the total contribution they made.
We have been sent a list of all the box holders, so we want to collect in ALL the House Boxes by the end of May either for reissue or removal from the list so we can have accurate information to give the Society.
If you would like to make a Standing order to the Society in future you will find forms in the Children’s Society Area by the West Door. There are also forms if you would like to become a new Box Holder.
Thank you for your continued support for the work of the Society.
Alan & Catherine Turton
