The Winter Warmer Appeal
My children, love must not be a matter of words or talk; it must be genuine, and show itself in action. This is how we may know that we belong to the realm of truth” (1 John 3:18-19, NEB)
We believe the greatest need in the community, other than the need for a personal relationship with Jesus Christ is to practically show the love of God to the poor and those who are the less fortunate than ourselves.
As the Lancashire Festival of Hope draws to a close and we approach the winter months, temperatures will begin to drop and many people across the region will be in need of warm clothing and other items to combat the cold weather. The Winter Warmer Appeal will allow local churches to distribute necessities to those in need in their own towns and villages through the months of October and November.
Can you and your church provide?
- Gloves, Hats and Scarves
- Socks and Underwear
- Sleeping Bags
- Survival Bags and Foil Blankets
- Toiletry Bags and Feminine Hygiene Pads
All items will be collected and centrally stored in Blackpool. After the Lancashire Festival of Hope comes to a close these items will be distributed across Lancashire to partnering churches as the cold weather sets in. If you are ready for a collection please call the festival office on 01253922560 to order a pick-up time.
