Dear Neighbour…….

This year we have secured £840 from Tesco to help support our neighbours this Christmas. We shall be supporting the Kingswood Estate Tenants and Residents Association pensioners Christmas Meal on the 16th Dec and the Christ Church Open Door Kitchen with gift boxes.

We are asking you to come to one of our events and sign a Christmas Card to go out with our community gifts.

Your Christmas message is to show that you are thinking about your neighbours at this difficult and what can be a lonely time of the year.

We have approached schools and scout groups to help us make some Christmas cards and the more we get the more we can give out. They will be distributing the cards to people they know too. You can do the same.

Alternatively if you’d like to make a donation then see the links below. You can make a cash or food donation.


A collection box for the christmas cards and food will be at the following events.

  • Saturday 13 Nov 11am to 1pm – Make Christmas decorations in the Gipsy Hill station community garden (by platform 1 step free entrance)
  • Saturday 20 Nov All day! – Christmas Tree installation on Gipsy Hill
