I am pleased to report that this year Bishopstoke Parish donated £496.76 to the work of The Children’s Society through the home-held boxes. This is another year of generous giving despite the shrinking number of box-holders.
The Children’s Society works with children and young people who, right now in Britain are feeling scared, unloved and unable to cope. They listen, support and act. There are no simple answers, so the Society works with other organisations and professionals to tackle the complex problems.
The supporters, such as the box-holders around the country, fund the services of The Children’s Society and join their campaigns to show children and young people they are on their side, because no child should feel alone.
