CHRISTMAS ACTIVITIES

BUCKET COLLECTIONS FOR CHRISTIAN AID
As part of our Fund Raising, we are having two events this Christmas.
Bucket collection at Gordale Garden Centre
Thursday, 14th December, from 10am - 8pmand
Bag Packing at Sainsbury’s 
Saturday, 23rd December, from 10am - 8pm.
The people of Neston and District are most generous, and if we have enough volunteers to spare just one hour of their time we can make a huge difference to the lives of many vulnerable people. The money goes to the General Fund which is for disaster relief and the on-going work of Christian Aid in many countries. The Government will match fund what we raise until the end of December. If you are able to help, the rota is at the back of Church - please put your name and phone number next to the most convenient time for you - and thank you.                                                        Lynne Vaughan   336-8920
