St Mary’s has three methods of raising money for, and awareness of, the Children’s Society. The annual Christingle Service, the sale of Christmas Cards and Gifts and the House Boxes.
The Christingle Service organised by Joyce Lydford brought in £171.50, she is now working on how to have the service this year
The sale of Christmas Cards and Gifts organised by Catherine Turton brought in £487.50, and a generous donation from a member of the congregation brought in a further £200.00. Catherine now has the brochures for this year and will shortly have samples so will be ready to take your orders
The House Box opening has been delayed. We had hoped to have a blessing, opening and a Children’s Society Speaker but by the time this was arranged it had to be cancelled because of the Covid 19 lockdown. The Society cancelled all box openings but we now have their permission to start again so please bring your boxes to church or we can collect them.
Thank you for your continued support for the work of the Society.
Alan & Catherine Turton
