The Christmas Sacks appeal, led by Bridge Church, aims to help hundreds of families in the city who are struggling to provide for their families at Christmas either due to financial difficulty or ill health.

This year we will have a ‘Giving Tree’ in the entrance with tags that explain who you can buy for. So you can pick a tag; buy a present and then place it under the Christmas tree. If you prefer you can still buy a non- specified gift and leave it under the tree. Also we will be collecting chocolates, sweets, Christmas treats plus non-perishable food. Wrapping paper and sellotape will also be needed.

So look out for the ‘Giving Tree’ that will be set up shortly.

Families who have been referred to the project will have an opportunity to go to the Bridge Central and choose gifts for their children. They will receive a wrapped gift for themselves and be able to choose what food they would like to have. There will also be wrapping stations where they can wrap the gifts themselves or simply take paper and sellotape home to wrap the gifts.
