FOLLOWING on from the success of last year’s project, Craft in Mind has launched their ‘Feed a Family at Christmas’ appeal again this year.
Still based at Cockhedge Shopping Park, the aim is to provide around 200 vulnerable families and individuals with a Christmas dinner, focusing on those who will find the season especially difficult due to job losses, waiting for benefits and ongoing hardship caused by the pandemic.
George Wesson, Cockhedge Shopping Centre Manager said: “Emma and John are continuing to carry out a valuable service in the community. Although it might appear that we are coming out of the recent struggles, there are still many in the community who need and benefit from the support Craft in Mind is providing. The landlords at Cockhedge are pleased to be able to support Emma and John in every way that they can during these trying times.”
The team is asking residents to nominate those who would benefit most from the festive feast, which will include a turkey and all the trimmings for people to prepare at home, complete with Christmas crackers and gifts.
Residents can nominate a family, individuals, or themselves by collecting a nomination form from the Craft in Mind store.
Nominations are to be returned to the team by December 11th.
Everyone who has been selected will be contacted on December 13th to inform them they have been chosen, and they can collect their special dinner in-store.
Craft in Mind’s Christmas appeal is being supported by Ken and Angela Wright of Liberty’s Gin Bar in Culcheth, Frenchy’s Hair and Nail Parlour in
Leigh and bents Garden & Home.
Each of these businesses has donation buckets that will help Craft in Mind fund their cause. Christmas presents can also be donated at the Craft in Mind store in Cockhedge Shopping Park.
