News about the Children's Society boxes

Children’s Society at St Andrew’s Church, Swavesey

The week before lockdown many of you kindly brought your Children’s Society boxes to church for the annual count. Those that arrived that day were the only ones that I received because of the sudden COVID 19 regulations that were put into place.

I have contacted the Children’s Society twice now for guidance and they tell me that they have put a ‘pause’ on all collections as they do not want to compromise anyone’s health and safety. However I fear that their funds must be severely depleted this year and childhood poverty has not gone away. I am hoping therefore to contact supporters by phone or email to arrange a day/time when I might collect your box. At the same time I have collection boxes to return which I will try to do in the near future.
