The folk at St Thomas’ Church, Brampton have been busy donating presents to be given out to the people who come to Church on the Bus this Christmas. Visitors who came to the Church to see the Christmas Tree Festival also brought presents. Altogether we have received over 300 parcels. Thank you to everyone for your great generosity.
One of our willing volunteers – 93 years of age but loves helping to make the sandwiches for the people who visit Church on the Bus.
Our volunteers work on a rota system taking turns to make the sandwiches for the Bus. On a typical evening we will give out about 80 sandwiches – usually a choice of tuna mayo, ham, cheese and egg mayo. We also provide hot soup as well as tea, coffee and hot chocolate. Often we are fortunate to have been given donations of cakes and biscuits. These are always well received! If you would to help in any way please visit our How you can support us page.
On Friday 22nd July we are taking the Bus to Christ Church CE Primary School on Tapton View Road in Chesterfield. We will be showing the students round the Bus and talking to them about the work we do and the people we help.
We’re really grateful to the School for giving us this opportunity.
