Mince Pies to busy commuters

On Sunday 13th December, seven volunteers from GAP churches bagged 600 donated mince pies along with a GAP napkin and details of Christmas services in and around Alton. This mammoth task took them 3 hours, during which they were fortified by several cups of tea and some mulled wine!

They were joined by additional volunteers at Alton Station from just before 6am the next morning as the mince pies were given out to those commuting to and from London.

With a cheery "Happy Christmas", the mince pies were offered to all as a gift from the GAP Churches this Christmas time. The commuters were somewhat surprised to be greeted by us — but the overwhelming response was 'thank you" and "that's really kind!" We brought a smile to many a sleepy face and by 8:15am, the last of the mince pies had been given out and our boxes were empty.
