Children’s Toy Collection

hospital toyThank you so much to everyone who donated new toys and books for our appeal for the children's department at Epsom Hospital. They were all safely delivered this morning and the staff were thrilled - they literally clapped their hands with joy! This year we decided to do this instead of collecting shoeboxes as we have done in the past. The hospital really needed new toys to give as gifts over Christmas and lots of craft supplies to use with children whilst they are in hospital. I was certainly able to deliver plenty of everything and felt very proud to be your Vicar whilst doing it.

BBC ‘Children in Need’

Once again this year the little ones at Toddler Time took part in fund-raising activities to raise money for this charity. We had great fun with a sponsored ‘sticking’ session and made Pudsey headbands. Also, families could go for a ‘Walk in the Park’ – we provided a map and questions to answer and the children had things to spot and collect. In total we raised £90.50 for Children in Need. Well done everyone.

Royal British Legion 2018 Poppy Appeal

In this centenary year marking the end of the First World War, our church has really made an effort to recognise this important milestone.  The excellent Remembrance Service and Community event had a huge impact on church members and local people. Our sterling work, over the years, to support the Poppy Appeal has resulted in year on year increases in the amount we have raised for the good work of the RBL. We expected this year to be good as people recognised the anniversary and we have also added more collecting opportunities, like Danetree & Blenheim Schools. Accordingly we have banked a total of £6008.08 which is £1883 more than we banked last year. This does not include the £675 that was raised at the Remembrance Day Service and afternoon event. Our heartfelt thanks go out to all those who volunteered to collect from door to door, stand in the draughty foyer at Homebase, delivered tins to shops and businesses or stood late into the evening at the Odeon Cinema, you are truly amazing, Well Done! We will be sending out individual Thank-You Cards to all collectors to let you know how well you did.

Many thanks to you all.

God bless, Andy & Sue Hayward
