Our Burns Night ceilidh and dinner is coming up on Friday 20th January 2017 at Holy Trinity Church, Boar Lane, Leeds, LS1 6HW. Tickets cost £12 and can be purchased by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you have any questions or would like any more information, please contact us at: email@example.com
Come along and exchange your unloved accessories in aid of St George’s Crypt at Boston Spa Village Hall on Wednesday 8th February at 7.30pm.
Give those lonely, once loved things at the back of your wardrobe a new lease of life by ‘swishing’ it for that ‘thing’ you’ve always wanted. This is how it works: bring two accessories in return for two vouchers, which you then trade for the items of your choice.
Suggested accessories in good condition to bring along are: bags, shoes, hats, gloves, scarves, toiletries, perfume, and costume jewellery.
Doors open at 7:30pm for voucher registration, followed by the first swish at 8:30pm, and the second swish at 9:00pm. No pinching, biting or scratching!
There will also be pamper counters, with a bar and refreshments available throughout.
Tickets cost £10, and this includes a glass of fizz, nibbles and goodie bag.
There will also be a luxury raffle!
If you would like tickets, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org, or telephone 0113 245 9061, or contact Elaine Campbell on 07985 930931.
We would like to encourage your young people to get involved with their community by thinking of all sorts of creative ways to carry out ‘One Good Deed’ in return for a donation for St George’s Crypt. Remember ‘Bob a Job’?
In the past at this time of year many schools, churches and the public at large are very thoughtful in donating lots of consumables which we use on a day to day basis both here at the Crypt and at our food parcel service in Armley. These donations help us to continue supporting the vulnerable and needy in our city, but we also need help to heat the building, cook the food, wash the bedding - - -. Last month we washed 456 sets of bedding – that’s an enormous amount of washing powder.
At St George’s Crypt we feed 70 people each day and offer 36 beds each night but we provide something even more important and that is community. Community provides a great security net when in need; it encourages people to get involved which makes people feel valued; it creates a sense of belonging. All together this helps to nurture self-esteem and along with that comes confidence which form the building blocks to a new life.
In or out of school; large gesture or small favour it all counts. Bake some cakes, loan a book, plait your friend’s hair, paint their nails, wash up, sweep the drive – whatever; be as creative as you like! You can ‘make someone’s day’ and by return their donation will directly support the crucial work of the Crypt.
