CHRISTINGLE SERVICE – COLLECTION CANDLES IN AID OF THE CHILDREN’S SOCIETY
Thanks to everyone who sent in their collection candles at the end of last term. By filling them with all your loose change, you managed to raise £125.00 for the Children’s Society. Thank you so much for all your kind donations. Thanks to Jean Bramall, our school Governor and member of the Church PCC who counted the money and sent the donation to The Children’s Society on our behalf.
HITs Radio Mission Christmas
Thank you to everyone who bought an extra Christmas present for the HITs radio Mission Christmas appeal. Mission Christmas is all about bringing children in poverty across Greater Manchester some Christmas spirit at a time when they need it most. Organisations across Manchester have nominated children who they know will not have a present under their tree this Christmas. I am so pleased that St. John’s could be involved in this appeal and be part of spreading Christmas cheer across Manchester.
Save the Children- Christmas jumper day
Thanks to everyone who wore their Christmas Jumpers for the Official Christmas Jumper Day in aid of Save the Children Charity today. Your donations raised £46. 50 to help children in the UK and around the world. We did have a goal of £100.00 on our totaliser which could pay for a school library in Rwanda so if you have not sent your donation in yet please do so we
can meet our target!
