Our Lady of the Assumption (Hedge End)
This Christmas our gifts will go to Poitiers Care Food Bank - a Catholic Organisation which support any person or family in need in and around the Southampton area. Poitiers delivers two basic meals per day to 50-60 households per week. Our gifts will provide some “Christmas Treats” (Christmas crackers, biscuits, chocolates, sweets, tins of fruit, etc). Please take a tag from the tree and help bring some “Christmas Cheer’ for these families in need of our help.
Thank you for your kindness and generosity.
Christ the King & St Colman (Bitterne)
This year we will be collecting for Stella Maris (Apostleship of the Sea). Items of woolly hats, scarves, gloves, men's toiletries, rosaries and Christmas chocolates. There is no need to wrap them but please write a label saying Happy Christmas from Christ the King and St Colman. The gifts will be collected after Mass on Sunday 19th December.
Thank you for your generosity.
St Brigid (West End)
Please make your choice of gifts from the labels on the tree, purchase and wrap the gifts, attaching the label SECURELY. Place under the tree by the 3rd SUNDAY OF ADVENT, 12th December, when all gifts will be collected and delivered to our chosen charity THE SUNDAY LUNCH CLUB.
Please leave any gifts worth more than £5.00 or more, unwrapped, as these will be prizes for raffles. Any clean, unused items of clothing are also welcome.
