Women Together — Whitechapel Mission
What an amazing response there was from so many church members and friends in order to produce and send 32 filled-to-the-brim Christmas goodie-bags for the women of Whitechapel Mission! Each bag had at least ten items inside; hand cream, deodorant, lip gloss, makeup, nail polish, body spray, socks etc. and a hand written label was attached to each bag with the name of a contributor. This made it a more personable gift for each of the receiving ladies. They were handed out as gifts, by Mrs Christmas, at the Women's Christmas party celebration on 13th December.
Sue Miller, Centre Manager at Whitechapel Mission, sent this message:
"Please pass on our grateful thanks to everyone involved at Princes Risborough for providing the gifts for the ladies; we really couldn't do this without the help of people as yourselves. Wishing you and all at Princes Risborough a very Merry Christmas and a peaceful New Year. With grateful thanks"
