Spreading Christmas Cheer

This week, we are asking you, to help share the love with those isolated and facing crisis on the Island this winter. We will be collecting canned foods, dry goods and toiletries for donation to the local Christ Church on the Isle of Dogs. Their pantry is running very low and as you can imagine, it is a bad time of the year for those in need.

We know it is a bit last minute but every single donation helps, and together we hope our combined donations will make a real difference.

Below is more information and some suggestions, please give what you can.

Thank you,
Social Secretary
