A big thank you to everyone who has donated to our Boxes of Hope appeal. We were able to make up 51 Bags of Hope on Wednesday 17th June and we delivered nearly all of them. The families that received them were referred to us by many different people and organisations around the town and all recipients were very grateful, some overwhelmed, with the generosity of the gift.
However we still have lots of families that require our help; one school that we have spoken to has many families that are in need and require a lot more bags.We have been able to give them just 18 but we need many more as there are still many families in need.
This is just the tip of the iceberg and we expect the referrals to be coming in fast over the next few weeks. It has been a real blessing to be able to deliver the Bags of Hope to these families and we have had some really interesting conversations with many of them.
Please please continue to donate, you can either drop your donations straight into the Whiteman room at church or we can collect them from you. If you know of anyone that really needs a Bag of Hope let us know. Contact us from here.
Please keep praying for this initiative as we partner with TLG and minister to the community and those in need around us
