Christmas Present Appeal - Salvation Army
This year we are participating in the Christmas Present Appeal for the Salvation Army. We want to teach the children about generosity for others and make them aware that there are children elsewhere in the world who have nothing.
There are a number of ways you can help make a local child's Christmas a happier time this year:
- Donate a new unwrapped toy age range from 0-18 yrs
- Donate a tub of chocolate treats
- Tell your friends, neighbours and work colleagues about the appeal, ask them to collect as well.
