Syria and Iraq crisis appeal
The Church in Westbury Park are collecting practical items for their latest Syria and Iraq Crisis Appeal and asks that we send gifts not cast offs!
The latest estimate is that nearly 28.5 million people need humanitarian assistance in the region, something that local people in Westbury Park and Redland can help with.
The Church has requested donations of immaculate clothes for all seasons and all ages, new underwear (with tags or in packaging), shoes and welly boots, bedding, nappies, sanitary towels and incontinence pads, wheelchairs, zimmers, paired crutches, first aid kits, and moses baskets.
Please bring items or completed packs to the Methodist Church from Monday 3 September until Friday 28 September, 9am - 5pm. The donation towards transport costs (£5 per bag, £10 per large bag) can be put in the letterbox in the Church office door. If donating Dignity Bags, or Smiley Bags please pay £2 per bag for transport costs.
This year we are also collecting ‘Care packs’ for mothers and babies, ‘Dignity bags’ for girls and women and ‘Smiley bags’ for children. We have a large stock of bags suitable for these last two. Full details of the contents of these can be found on the Samara’s Aid Website www.samarasaidappeal.org/care-packs/
