All Saints, Wolverhampton

has put pout the following appeal:  If you find yourself with unwanted Christmas gifts please bear our Warm Welcome Project (a night time drop in for women on the streets of our parish) in mind. Toiletries, sweet treats, blankets and fleecy wraps, but in particular hot chocolate powder and coffee. We get through buckets of both, it’s expensive and we receive no funding other than some very generous donations.
