Millfield Christmas Fair

November 22, 2014 0

Today Santa Claus arrived at Millfield Shopping and to greet him a fair was held with lots of ideas for  Christmas presents.  For some of the children this was the first chance to tell Santa what they hope to see under the Christmas tree this year.  As Christmas is a time for giving the St Vincent de Paul giving tree was launched which is a great opportunity to give to someone less fortunate.

By participating in the Giving Tree Appeal you can help to spread Christmas cheer and excitement, through the gift of surprise! Even the smallest of gifts that are sometimes taken for granted are most welcome.

So how can you participate:

  1. Take a tag from the Christmas Tree
  2. Purchase a suitable gift or voucher to match the tag profile (Each tag lists a type of person and age group e.g. ‘Girl aged 4-7 years’ or ‘Adult Male’)
  3. Drop your gift at the collection point beside the tree.

The St Vincent de Paul volunteers will then distribute these gifts in the local community, just in time for Christmas!
