Shelter BoxThe PCC has committed to making three gifts of £600 to individual charities before the end of this financial year in acknowledgement of God’s abundant blessings to our church family. The first gift was made to the Lucy Willacy memorial fund. Lucy was an 8 year old pupil at Larkholme School who died suddenly last year and whose funeral was at St Nicholas. The second gift has now been made to Shelter Box. This is an international charity which ships out boxes containing items to help disaster hit families. The boxes contain water filters, solar lights, pots and pans, tools and numerous other essential items. Your generous giving to St Nicholas Church is helping to support these initiatives!
