10.30 – 1.00pm
The Charities Support Group is responsible for making the charitable giving on behalf of the congregation and we aim to donate all the profits from the Holly Fair to the various charities the church supports. This year we have supported local charities such as Holiday Bible Week, the Winter Night Shelter and a Family Contact Centre where estranged parents can meet their children on neutral ground. We donated to overseas charities such as Mary’s Meals who provide meals for school children in Africa, the Leprosy Mission and the Church Missionary Society who fund schools and medical care.
Please help us to continue this giving on your behalf by supporting the Holly Fair. We need people to run stalls, help make holly rings, bake cakes, donate raffle prizes and bottles for the bottle tombola. Any ideas for new eye-catching stalls are always welcome!
Donations of toiletries, jewellery, new unwanted gifts, chocolate, red and green items for the Holly and Ivy stall are also needed. There will be lists to sign up to at the back of the church throughout November. If you are able to donate a raffle prize it would be helpful to know as soon as possible.
The 2015 Fair raised £3,085. Let’s try to make 2016 a great success both financially and socially.
Please contact the Parish Office if you can help in anyway.
