Inspire

Hope for Belper bought together folks from across the congregations to put together Christmas Hampers for those of our neighbours who through numerous circumstances would have been unable to celebrate Christmas with a festive family meal.

Christians from many local churches responded with amazing generosity to sponsor hampers to the tune of £1,600.  This meant that on the day we were able to shop for and put together 33 hampers instead of the initial 20 planned.

The staff at the Sure Start Children’s Centre were delighted to be able to support so money more families in this way.

Many thanks to all those who supported the project again this year, from some anecdotal feedback and a note from one family the provision of these hampers means a lot to those who receive them.

Many thanks also goes to ‘Inspirepac’ for specially making and gifting the hamper boxes to order.

  • Christmas Eve also saw Hope for Belper out on the Market Place once again supporting the Town Council Carol Service.  This event is always well attended and the cup of hot chocolate has become a fixture over the years.

Around 500 cups were served and our thanks go to the management of The Black Swan for once again allowing us to work out of their kitchen and also to No.28 for supplying tables.
