The Advent Tree

The beginning of December will mean that Advent is upon us and the Advent giving tree will appear at the back of the Church.  As usual you are asked to put your gift in the envelope provided and hang it on the tree.  This will then be replaced by a star and the proceeds will be sent to Sight Savers International. 

This is one of the world’s leading charities combating blindness in developing countries.  It works with partner organizations in poor and poorly-served communities to help establish and support permanent activities that prevent and cure blindness, restore sight and provide help for those who will never see.  It is one of the founding members of “VISION 2020: the Right to Sight”, an international collaboration of eye care agencies committed to eradicating avoidable blindness by the year 2020. 

We look forward to seeing the tree covered in stars!
