Mince pies at station 2
MInce pie packing

Following the success of last year's 'mince pie mission' at Alton Station, it was decided to repeat the event. A group from the GAP churches gathered on the afternoon of 11th December to pack up 600 mince pies to give to early morning commuters. Each package contained a leaflet listing all the Christmas services taking place locally and a napkin with the GAP logo — and a pie, of course!

The next morning saw a happy band of volunteers gathered outside the station for a 6am start. At 7.15 they were replaced by the 'late' shift and by 8.15 most of the pies had been given to commuters, almost all of whom were very pleased to receive a free gift.
