Christmas Gift Donations
Due to Covid we are unfortunately unable to host the Annual Festive Teas for the senior members of our community this year.
We are therefore planning on doing something a little different this year, and visiting our community with a Christmas carol and a small gift.
If you could please help and donate a small, wrapped gift please contact Julie O’Brien firstname.lastname@example.org by the 30 November for further information Thank you!

Reverse Advent Calendar
Would you like to help the East Elmbridge Foodbank by having a reverse advent calendar?The idea is that instead of us receiving a chocolate each day, we put an item into a box or bag each day in December which we donate to the foodbank. A list of items is below, but if you wanted to do this in November you could also add Christmas items (mince pies, Christmas cake etc) which would be lovely. As you’d expect, the logistics of dropping food at the foodbank is more challenging this year, but you can: drop it in the Narthex when OLOL is open or at Fr. Rob’s house (walk clockwise round the church and you’ll find it!) or at Clare’s house (contact Clare on email@example.com to arrange). We will then arrange for it to be delivered in good time before Christmas.
All non perishable items would be very gratefully received but the following would be amazing: cleaning products, tinned meat, tinned fish, tinned pies, washing products and toiletries.
