2020 has been an awful year for some many people, especially the homeless. We probably take for grant having clean socks to put on everyday, but that's not a given for everyone. We know that the GTR Great Sock Appeal makes a significant difference helping those most in need so please give generously.

This donation comes from London Rd Station Partnership, Brighton. In our community gardening, we interact with people who have to live on the street. Great to contribute to a focused and very practical collection

What a simple but excellent idea. We take socks for granted but, if you're sleeping rough, it's cold, it's wet and you don't have warm feet, it must be even more miserable.

As God sent his son into this world to give him so freely, so we as his people who have received from him in abundance we aught also to freely give not grudging to those who have so little. Jesus said you will always find people in need - what a pleasure to donate to such a cause. God bless.
