Love Christmas boxes rectangle 1

This year we want to distribute 5000 boxes across Nottingham!

We are so excited to partner with churches across the country as part of the Love Christmas campaign to give boxes to families and individuals across our city, as well as those in prison.

Last year the boxes we gave away to those experiencing hardship meant a huge amount. Watch this short video to hear about some of those touched by this simple gesture of love and kindness. You can see from the video that we are dreaming of reaching more people this year and we need your help.

What do we need?

This year we are asking for any of the following:

Tubs of chocolate

Boxes of biscuits

Men's Christmas socks

Fairy lights (batteries included)

Uno or Dobble.

Trent Kids and Trent Youth donations

We are asking Trent Youth and our 0-5s to donate a gift for someone their age (wrapped and labelled for age and gender) and asking our 5-11s to donate Uno or Dobble (don't need to be wrapped). We will be gathering these gifts at the 10:15 service on Sunday 28 November. These gifts will be going to children living in temporary accommodation.

When can you drop off?

We are open to drop donations down to the Trent Compassion building at the following times between Tues 23 November and Friday 10 December:

Please come to the back shutters on Tuesday, Thursdays and Fridays from 10:00-12:00

Saturday 04 December 10:00-12:00. We will also be collecting on Sunday 28 November and Sunday 05 December before the morning and evening services.

How can I volunteer?

We are looking for a number of volunteers to help pack, wrap and get involved in all we are doing this Christmas. There are slots during the week, but also some evening and Saturday opportunities. There are over 250 volunteering slots available and at least half are outside of normal working hours, so plenty of options to get involved, either as an individual or even as a small group!
