CAP Christmas Hampers
Christmas is a time for celebration but for many of our CAP clients, Christmas is a time of stress and feeling guilty as finances are very tight. So to spread some joy this Christmas, we would like to give our clients a special treat in the form of a Christmas hamper. As a church, we would love you to join us, if you are able, to help collect together some items that will bring a smile this Christmas. Some ideas of what you could contribute are on the leaflet at the back of Church
There will be a box at the back of church for you to leave any donations by 14th December. Any questions or queries contact email@example.com . Thank you for your support and generosity in blessing our clients!
