Christmas was a busy time for the Eden Oldham team; seen here are food donations, stacked high, for Christmas hampers. Kelly and Ruth in the picture spent the day packaging up and delivering to 54 local households who needed a boost in the run up to Christmas. This was all made possible thanks to donations worth £1500 from our partner church The Salvation Army and £750 from the Message Trust.
One grateful recipient touched by the actions of practical strangers, said,”I never expected anyone to show they cared in such a practical way!”
The ‘Lighthouse Project’ run by the Salvation Army, provides a regular drop-in service to drug addicts and homeless people. The Eden team provide volunteer help and support to the project and pictured here are two local girls Emily and Andy who provided extra help with the Christmas dinner. They managed to serve 30 maginificent meals that day and guests were able to take away additional food and a gift bag.
Tim Royales, one of Fitton Hill’s Leaders said, “It’s great that we can report these stories, but I also want to tell our supporters that because of them, I get to tell a young insecure lad how amazing he is and what good things are in store for him and get to see his face light up. That is a life changer for him!”
