The Vintners' Foundation
Children's Christmas Present Appeal
Providing support at Christmas
Many Livery Companies, and other organisations which hold Carol Services in St James Garlickhythe, invite their members and guests to place gifts for disadvantaged children under the Christmas tree. The gifts are later collected by the Salvation Army and distributed to deserving children on or near Christmas Eve.
If you not able to attend St James Garlickhythe at Christmas, or maybe you just don’t have the time to arrange a suitable present (Christmas is a very busy time) you are invited to donate an amount to this appeal instead.
With ALL the funds raised we will buy a selection of children’s presents which will then be wrapped and placed beneath the tree in St James Garlickhythe church in time for the Company Carol Service. Naturally, we will also be organising our very popular ‘wrapping day’ in December to which members and friends are invited and festive refreshments and lunch will be served! A fun and very sociable occasion.
Your donation would be very much appreciated and will allow for the best possible contribution from Members of the Vintners’ Company to this very worthy cause. Let’s see if we can beat last year’s total! Thank you.
