We collected a boot-full of goods for Alabare under our church Christmas tree, pictured here being picked up by Helen Inglis, the Alabare Church Engagement Officer.
Thanks to everyone for your donations.
We received this letter of Thanks from Alabare:
‘Thank you so very much for organising for Salisbury United Reformed Church to collect items for our residents during Advent. The response was absolutely wonderful! Everything has now been carefully divided up and sent out to the homes across the South West, as we try to ensure that everyone receives a Christmas gift.
It was a delight to be with you all, and as I said in my address, last year Alabare worked with 1,950 people and the support of the churches makes a huge difference to the assistance we can offer, through prayer, volunteers and donations.
Please pass on our thanks to all who have contributed and encourage them to continue to support our work in their prayers.
Wishing you all a very Happy Christmas
Helen Inglis, Church Engagement Officer Alabare
