The Laker team have had the pleasure of fundraising and gathering donations this year for the Coventry Cyrenians Christmas Appeal 2017. Some members of the team have spent evenings knitting scarves and gloves, to include with other items such as mince pies, chocolate, socks and toiletries, as well as over £100 of monetary donations.
On Christmas Day, Coventry Cyrenians will again be welcoming people to the Methodist Central Hall in Coventry for a Christmas Day meal. Many of the people who attend are homeless, vulnerable or are alone and would like to sit down and enjoy their Christmas meal with others. For some of the people who attend, this will be their only opportunity for a hot meal on Christmas Day.
Donations can still be dropped off at their Head Office (Oakwood House); at Windsor’s and Refreshed (at entrance to Fargo village). If you would like to make a monetary donation you can do this in a number of ways: you can give online at www.justgiving.com/campaigns/charity/coventrycyrenians/christmas2017, or you can also text CHRI17 £10 to 70070.
We would like to say a big thank you to all our staff that donated, knitted and took part, and wish everyone at Coventry Cyrenians a wonderful Christmas meal.
