Giving Tree Project 2018
Last year, as part of a citywide response All Saints’ Church, Allesley was able to help bless over 1,000 disadvantaged Coventry children and young people, and made their Christmas special. To take part this year just take a ticket from the table at the back of Church, buy a present (items have to be new, sorry no cuddly toys or clothes), place presents unwrapped under the table with your ticket. Final collection from Church is 09 December 2018 (10am Service) (unless you want to send direct to Coventry City Mission then it’s 03 December 2018 ring 024 7661 5931). For ideas on what to buy, please see list below. Darren Burgess, Executive Director of Coventry City Mission will be at Church on 09 December 2018, at the 10am Service to preach and to collect our Christmas donations.
P.S. Please give generously, as we say every year – even a toy from a bargain shop can make a difference!
