Early shift mince pies at station

Once again the GAP churches will be distributing mince pies to railway staff and commuters at Alton Railway Station on Monday 11th December 2017. Commuters will receive a small bag containing a mince pie, a napkin printed with a Christmas greeting and a flyer detailing the Christmas Services in all our churches.

We estimate that we will need about 500 mince pies and are asking you for donations of shop bought mince pies. These should be taken to any of the GAP Churches by lunchtime on Sunday 10th December.

If anyone would like to help bag them up at 4 Windmill Hill on the afternoon of Sunday 10th December, or distribute them on Monday 11th December between 6am and 8.45am, please phone me on 01420 85247 or email me at sarahebroadbent@aol.com.

Thank you. Sarah Broadbent
