Our theme for Christmas 2013 was HOPE. In addition to the Carol services which saw over 3,500 people attending, we were able to share hope through our King’s Christmas Trees and Big Red Box intiatives.
We had an incredible response and collected 776 boxes – over three times the number of boxes we received in each of the previous two years! As a result, hundreds of families and individuals were blessed over Christmas.
Each box contained a mix of essential items and Christmas treats, and were distributed through partner organisations such as Social Services and local charities.
We are so grateful to everyone who partnered with us, and are especially grateful to Sainsbury’s in Sydenham and Lee Green as well as the Co-op in Downham for allowing us to collect in their stores. The response from local customers and employees was both overwhelming and humbling.
We look forward to blessing even more families in December 2014…
