Comfort and Joy for Christmas

Very many thanks to more than 40  people who through this project helped bring the joy of Christ’s coming to the recipients at a very difficult time.   Their overwhelmingly response was gratitude for the love shown to them by St Mary’s. Fifty people received a Christmas meal with a goodie bag and a further 20 were given goodie bags.   Most had a copy of the Church of England’s Comfort and Joy booklet.

These meals and gifts were made possible by your very generous donations of nearly £700 and the surplus will go to the Long Table  allowing them to provide 75 meals to the vulnerable over the winter.  Thank you.

Collection points for food bank donations remain open daily for drop offs:  25 Churchill Dr, 77 Copt Elm Rd, 17 Ham Cl, 17 Moorlands Dr and 26 Ravensgate Rd.

Speaking of bringing joy – Claire Westaway has made a short film about Christmas in Charlton Kings – take a look here.
