LINK TO HOPE

Thank you to everyone who has taken/requested shoeboxes and leaflets for this year’s appeal.

As you will see from the new leaflets, filling a box this year is much more straightforward.  You simply choose what you want to include in your box (using the guidelines on the leaflet) and fill in the contents list once you have decided. 

After packing your box wrap the whole thing in Christmas paper like a parcel and, with the leaflet open, attach the contents list to the outside of the box with sellotape but only on the three red sides marked.  Close the leaflet, fill in the gift aid section

if appropriate, attach £2 towards transport costs and fix shut with sellotape at the

top and bottom of the page where shown.  (Whilst all this seems very complicated

to describe it will all become very clear once you see the leaflet).  The donations can then be removed by the charity before sending out the shoeboxes each with their own contents list still attached.

Due to the fact that a number of you have kindly been very busy over the last few months, we have a supply of knitted items available for people to take to use in their boxes (including home-made knitted hand puppets, which have been shown to the charity and have been approved to go into the boxes).  We will aim to have all of these items available at the 9.15am. services at St. Ippolyts (or call Christine and Arthur Sibun on 01462-459145 for more information).

Link to Hope needs to have all of the boxes by early November (as stated on the leaflet) so, if you get your completed box to church or to Christine and Arthur on

or before Sunday 5th November at the very latest, we will ensure that this happens.

This means that if you haven’t already done so, there is still plenty of time to do a box for a needy family or for a needy elderly person this Christmas.

Please, can you help?  Thank you.

Friends of St Ippolyts Church, Church decorating for Harvest Festival

FRIENDS OF ST. IPPOLYTS CHURCH

We will be decorating the Church for our Harvest Festival on Saturday 30th September from 9.30am.  Flower and/or basket arrangements will be most welcome as will gifts of produce and non-perishable items.

We will need help packing up the Harvest gifts on Monday 2nd October from 9.30am.  Please come if you possibly can.  The non-perishable items will be shared between the North Herts. Shelter for the Homeless in Grove Road, Hitchin and the Food Bank in Letchworth.  Boxes of fruit and vegetables will be taken to people living in the parish so some small boxes would be most useful.

Diary Date:

Our next meeting will be held on Monday 22nd January 2018 at 10.30am. for 11.00am. at Little Almshoe House, St. Ippolyts.
