There is so much good work going on in support of those in need this year, which has proved to be very difficult one for many more people. Your support is very much appreciated.
Porch Boxes collection on Saturday 12th December
Thank you so much to everyone who donated to the Tottington Christmas collection for Porch Boxes. We received a massive 1865 items. Many local people will benefit from your generosity. Once again, thank you. 🎅🏻🎄
Just a reminder that it is Brandlesholme Community Foodbank, NOT Porch Boxes, who are collecting egg boxes and shopping bags. Thank you.
The Little Fir Tree Appeal
You may remember a few weeks ago I sent a link for Just Giving, which has been set up by a few community groups (ourselves included) to support our local Foodbanks to deliver a ‘Christmas Food Box’ to those in need. This has enabled those of you who are unable to take goods to foodbanks yourself to make a donation on line.
I am pleased to report that £945 has been raised so far and wish to thank you for your support. Should you still wish to donate you can do so on this link https://www.justgiving.com/crowdfunding/little-fir-tree
One of the community leaders has been in touch with the publishers of “The Little Fir Tree” and has some of these books for sale at the price of £9.95. They have agreed that £5 of each sale will go towards our funding for local foodbanks. If you are interested in buying a book you can contact Rob from the Rammy Men Group on the following link https://rammymen.org then click on ‘Little Fir Tree Appeal for more information.
Urgent request for Teenage Christmas Gifts
