Please can you make a pledge of what ever you would like to give to Chris Hodgson at email@example.com as soon as possible. We need to make the money available to the church by Sunday 6th December so Friday December 4th will be our cut off date.

Given the current situation with redundancies and furloughing it is almost certain that there will be more unfortunate families in need of help this year.
Here is an extract from this months church magazine:-
"Last year, thanks to your generosity, we packed 40 hampers, for families in need.
Each hamper cost approximately £40.
This year, we hope, with your financial help, to provide toys for the children of prisoners in Winchester Prison. We hope to pack hampers for families suggested to us by schools, health visitors or parishioners".
