SPREADING THE LOVE
“HUGE thanks to the hard working team! It is always a very emotional event when we come and collect gifts and the kindness of those who donate is very much appreciated by our families”
Last year, over 20 volunteers, in collaboration with over 180 health/social care workers, collected, sorted and distributed thousands of gifts to 1,000 children living in hardship in Derby.
The Christmas Connection project smashed its previous record of helping 850 children thanks to the generous donations from Derby City Mission supporters, local churches and the general public through our partnership with the Intu Centre, Eagle Market and ASDA.
“Thank you to all people who prepared presents for our nominated children. You and your team have put massive smiles on the faces of so many children who might not have had anything to be happy about this Christmas”
Tim Pawson, DCM’s Associate Schools Worker, was invited to one of the Children’s Christmas parties in Ilkeston. The children enthusiastically joined in the retelling of the Nativity hearing about the real meaning of Christmas.
