Christmas on Jesus!

Over summer, churches provided 15302 sandwiches to children in BwD. Now we want to make Christmas special for those families which might struggle to put a good meal together.

Last year, Kingdom Outreach provided hampers with fresh chicken and other goodies to over 30 families - who might otherwise have struggled to put a meal on the table. This year we want to double this figure.

Over 20 churches were involved in the Summer Lunchbox and we hope that many of them will also support Christmas on Jesus! We are praying for Prayer Warriors to surround our volunteers and families with love - as well as for people to come forward to help write Christmas Cards and inscriptions in the children' books we are gifting. Of course we also need volunteers to help pack and deliver the hampers.

If you want to be involved, get in touch with Gill gillian.beeley@together-lancashire.org.uk by 18th December.

I got so used to being hungry that I just thought, "That's life."
