The new World Gifts catalogues should be reaching a parish office near you this week and we are asking our parish volunteers to distribute them after masses this weekend or next weekend. So that parishioners have the opportunity to buy gifts that will make a difference to families living in developing communities.
Some of the new gifts this year include Trees for life at £7 – help a family plant a healthy future with five fruit trees plus the tools and training to produce their own tree nursery, and tippy tap at £10- in areas without running water this clever gift provides a hands-free way to wash hands after using the toilet. Quick and easy to set up it is operated by foot to help stop the spread of diseases.
Or you could get together in your parish or school to raise money for a camel that carries £400 or water testing kit at £254.
To order complete the form in the catalogue or call 0808 14 00014 between 9:30-5:30pm Monday to Friday or use this link. The closing date for orders that receive free delivery is 16th December. So please help to share the joy of Christmas and transform the lives of our brothers and sisters overseas.
