The charity ‘Save the Family’ is not able to receive our gifts of toys, etc., this year. So we have decided to do things slightly differently.
Gifts of toys (new or in good condition, please) will be gratefully received at the 0930 Live! service on 23rd November or the 10.45am or 6pm services on 30th November. These will be taken to Chester, to the DEBRA charity shop. DEBRA is a charity which supports sufferers from, and funds research into, a little-known congenital skin disease called EB. This disfigures children and blights their every-day living. Life expectancy for those with the disease is about age 20. You can find out more by going to their website, www.debra.org.uk.
In addition to toys, we are happy to accept non-perishable food-stuffs and basic toiletries such as soap, shampoo or toothpaste to be sent to the local food bank. Thank you in advance for your generosity.
Sock Tree: As usual, we will be having a sock tree in the front foyer from 30th November. Gifts of new socks, for men, women and children, are very welcome. The men’s socks go to a charity for the homeless in Chester. They have been delighted by our gifts in the past. Thick warm socks are particularly appreciated. Our sock tree is always a good talking point for people who come into the building.
