Postscript to the Needlemakers’ Carol Service

It is a month since the very successful Needlemakers' Carol Service on December 6. One of the traditions of this service is that we all bring gifts for children that are added to at other services and then distributed by the Salvation Army in Chelsea through agencies such as social services, mental health support teams and children support groups.

Major Sally Spry, Commanding Officer – Chelsea Corps, wrote, “On behalf of The Salvation Army in Chelsea, may I thank you all on behalf of the many children and families who were helped through your generous giving. We have supplied well over 800 gifts this year and we couldn’t do it without you and your support.”

“As the social worker who asked for gifts this year stated: “this year has been so hard for so many of the people we work with. With tears in their eyes your gifts were received on behalf of those in need.”

It is quite humbling to read that something, which cost all of us relatively little in effort and money, could have such an impact.
