Helping the Children of the North
We are fortunate to have the opportunity to help children in the north experience the joy of Christmas. Poverty, misfortune and the results of the Pandemic have resulted in even greater hardship and difficulty in providing surprises for children. Could you provide a gift for a girl or boy aged between 5 and 10. Gifts need to be new, and donated by Dec 6th.
Outdoor play equipment, fishing gear, bats, rugby balls, any balls, skipping ropes, drawing and colouring utensils, puzzles, and tops are just a few ideas!!!! Gifts will be distributed by Mothers Union members in the North.
