Help us bring Christmas cheer to kids at Christmas
St Peters Gildersome is partnering with the JCI 'Secret Santa' Appeal to distribute toys and gifts to needy children this Christmas.
Can YOU help us bring Christmas cheer this festive season?
Our church members have already pledged to provide over 100 toys for the appeal, which will see organisations such as Barnados. CAP, Gingerbread and Food Bank make sure that EVERY toy goes to a family that really needs and will appreciate your generosity.
Read on to find out how YOU can help...
Here are the guidelines that we've been given about the toys that are donated.
1. All the toys should be NEW 2. Please spend no more than £10 on a toy. 3. Do not wrap the toys - they all need to be checked prior to distribution and any wrapped toys will be to be unwrapped. 4. Please not give any food, sweets, chocolate etc as they cannot be distributed due to possible allergy issues.
Thanks for helping us all by following these guidelines!
You can either drop toys at St Peters - or if St Peters isn't open then they can be handed in at the Vicarage next door.
Or why not come along to our special TOY SERVICE this coming Sunday (December 8th) at 9.30 am. In this 45 minute service there will be the chance to hear more about the project from one of the Secret Santa team, as well as toy-themed worship, prayers and a special Toy Quiz! The service is fun, fast-moving and child-friendly Everyone Welcome!
All toys must be handed in no later than Sunday morning as they have then be processed ready for distribution over the next two weeks.
