Christmas Boxes

Once again, we seek to fill boxes with presents for those struggling this coming Christmas. This year we are supporting two local charities:

Yeldall Manor (A drug and alcohol rehabilitation centre):

Yeldall are asking for gifts of stationary, pocket games, books, scarves, hats, gloves, socks, underwear, non-alcoholic drink, treats, chocs, sweets. All Yeldall's clients are men, so gifts suitable for men only please.

Maidenhead Foodbank say:

'We provide extra food at Christmas, including festive food such as hams, Christmas cake & puddings, mince pies etc. but it would be nice to give them some treats. We'll focus on families & children. Items like sweets & chocolates, stocking fillers, decorations etc. - anything which is a little luxury that they are unlikely to buy themselves. This would be a nice surprise!'

Sandra Brooks says:

Please wrap presents individually with a note saying what they are (and size etc.) so the charities can allocate them to clients. There will be boxes in each church to place the presents in and I will deliver to the charities.
