Christmas Appeal

Christmas Appeal

Add a few extra items to your Christmas list, as St George’s will be continuing its annual tradition of donating Christmas gifts to the people served by the Salvation Army in Barcelona. According to the Salvation Army, the main need this year is for gifts for MEN. Vera will put together some bags for women separately.

You simply need to buy a festive gift bag and fill it with items from the list below. (If you are unable to fill an entire bag yourself, don’t worry, just bring it half-filled and we will top it up.)

Something warm: scarf, gloves, hat
Something useful: toiletries, shampoo, shower gel, soap, deodorant, razors, comb, toothbrush, toothpaste, washcloth, tissues
Something festive: turrón, chocolate, sweets (non-alcoholic)
Something extra: cologne/perfume, hand cream/moisturiser, notebook, pen, nail file, clippers, jewellery, playing cards

Some people like to include a greeting card. Remember to write it in Spanish.

Alternatively, you can donate money to help us purchase the items ourselves. Vera will use any money donated to get any missing items to top up the bags, and to make up a few separate bags for women.

Many families make bags at home with their children, using it as an opportunity to teach them that not everyone is as fortunate, and this is a good way of doing something special for someone else at Christmas.

We will collect the bags at church for delivery to the Salvation Army in time for Christmas.

Thank you all in advance! We are grateful for any and all help!
