Christmas Care, Caring for the lonely & homeless over Christmas
years of care in the community.
The trustees of Christmas Care Shelter would like to welcome Rt. Revd Dr Lee S Rayfield, Bishop of Swindon, Diocese of Bristol and our Patron.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank you all for your help over the years. Again, the shelter will be at Queens Drive Methodist
Church from Christmas Eve to morning of the 28th December.
We would like to thank everyone who helped make 2012 Christmas Care a huge success and to watch out for our volunteer meetings
which will be in November 2013.
The Shelter is celebrating
24 years of care in the community, the venue is Queens Drive Methodist Church Hall, Park South, Swindon. We are open 24 hours from
2pm on Christmas Eve to 11am on the 28th December for tea, coffee and a friendly face available 24 hours a day.
The project depends entirely on the generosity of the general public, we need:
- warm clothing
- any footwear
- toiletries and food
(We are also seeking donations of stationery items, books, children's clothing and toys)
Food we require:
- 12 large turkeys
- Meat to make sandwiches
- Tinned meat
Last year we served 500+ meals throughout the time we were open, serving 70 turkey dinners at Christmas Day Lunch.
The project depends entirely on voluntary donations to survive, as I am sure you are aware fund raising gets harder each year,
for this reason I am approaching you for assistance and will be greatful for any donations you are able to give us.
Cheques should be made payable to Christmas Care, a receipt will be given for all donations.
The trustees of Christmas Care wish you all a happy Christmas and New Year.
