The Christmas Cheer Appeal

Christmas Cheer and Christmas Big Wrap 2023

Through this year’s Christmas Cheer and Christmas Big Wrap Appeal, we will once again try and brighten the lives of people in our communities who are finding life tough.

How can you help?

FIRST, by making a financial donation. The donations we receive will be turned into Tesco Gift Vouchers and given to hard-pressed local families, identified by the Family Liaison Officer at each of our schools: Rolvenden County Primary School, St Michael’s Church of England Primary School, Tenterden County Infant School and Tenterden Church of England Junior School, and Wittersham Church of England Primary School.

If you wish to donate, you can do so online (here are the bank details):
Lloyds Bank
Sort Code 30 90 28
Account No. 01663306
Account Name PCC St Mildreds

Please identify your donation, using the phrase Christmas Cheer and Big Wrap Appeal.

Alternatively, pop your donation into an envelope marked Christmas Cheer and Big Wrap Appeal and give it to one of our ministers, put it through the letterbox at either Appledore or Tenterden Vicarage, or post it (cheques made payable to PCC St Mildred’s) to The Vicarage, Old Way, Appledore, Ashford, Kent TN26 2DB, or The Vicarage, Church Road, Tenterden, Kent TN30 6AT.

Donations can be large, small, or somewhere in between. Please give if you can. It would help us if your donation could be received by Sunday 3rd December. Thank you!

SECOND, take along a brand-new Christmas present, suitable for a child, to the Christmas Cheer and Christmas Big Wrap wrapping session at St Mildred's Church, Tenterden, on Saturday 2nd December from 9.30am. All presents will go to the same families as the Tesco Gift Cards.

In the past, the Christmas Cheer and Christmas Big Wrap Appeal has received some very moving letters of gratitude, and so we know that we will make a real difference to people’s lives this Christmas.
