Central England Quaker Christmas Appeal..
Central England Quakers have for the past 50+ years packed and delivered Christmas parcels to those who could use extra support during the festive period. With things being very different this year the plan is to provide probation staff with 900 x £15 worth of vouchers for local supermarkets.
Probation staff have asked to identify two or three of their current service users who are in dire need and would welcome a food parcel. Probation staff have agreed to purchase the items for their particular client(s) using the vouchers and then arrange to deliver the parcels. This means they can tailor the parcel to suit the family. It is hoped that at least this way, those who are hungry will have extra items over the festive period and a card will be sent with each parcel identifying how the funds have been raised. Central England Quakers are pleased to be able to maintain their close links with the probation services in the Midlands area with parcels going as far away as Hereford, Telford, Warwick, Walsall, Coventry, Solihull and all of Birmingham.
