Once again, a huge thank you to all who so generously donated to our Advent appeal to purchase children’s gift and food parcels for the Christian communities in Syria. The Parish has raised £2,380 which means that 34 families will now receive a food parcel and the same number will also receive a children’s gift parcel. The food parcels will provide basic food provisions for a family for one month, including rice, cooking oil, beans, and canned goods. The children’s gift parcels will provide warm clothes, shoes, toiletries, toys and some sweets. Your generosity will bring comfort to brothers and sisters in Syria and assure them that we are closely united through our shared Faith and so give them hope for a better future.
