G2 & The Besom in York

On Sunday 25th November G2 is partnering with The Besom in York to provide hampers for families in York.

Could you add some items to your weekly shop which would bless a family this Christmas?  It can be anything from shampoo to a new toy, from pasta to luxury biscuits.

Bring it along to either G2 service on 18th or 25th November ready to put together 10 hampers (or more!) on 25th.

Even if you don’t usually attend a G2 service you would be so welcome to come along and be part of making a difference to a family in York.

What items should we buy?

We suggest you don’t buy gifts for a specific people from above but think about one family and buy things that they could all benefit from - a game that suits all ages, a lovely box of chocolates or some age-appropriate toiletries.

Here are some suggestions from Besom:
