In a bid to give something back to our community this Christmas, we would love to encourage Trinity at Four families to take part in a reverse advent scheme!
The idea is to start off on the 1st December with an empty box and to then mark each day of advent by placing a food or household item into the box. At the end of December, the full box should be brought to church to be delivered to our friends at Nomad – a local charity helping vulnerable people in and around Henley (www.nomadhenley.co.uk) – where the goods will be sorted and duly distributed.
We have decided to go for a new year delivery (rather than pre-Christmas) as Nomad’s food bank will be low on supplies in January. If you want to know more, or have any questions, please get in touch.
Suggested items from Nomad are:
Hot Dogs/Meat Balls
Jars of Pasta Sauce
Tinned Spaghetti & Beans
Choc Spread/Peanut Butter
UHT Milk/Fruit Squash
Long life Fruit Juice
Toilet Rolls/Hand Soap
Washing Up Liquid
Washing Powder/Fabric Conditioner
Shower Gel/Bubble Bath
