Christmas Gift Bags for HMP Wandsworth Appeal 2022

The Anglican Chaplains at HMP Wandsworth would like to give a small Christmas gift bag to all the Christian prisoners this Christmas.  We are reaching out to all the parishes neighbouring the prison to help.  Our target is 350 gift bags.

GIFT BAGS TO INCLUDE the following items (which have been cleared by the prison to go into the bags):-

  • A Sachet of hot chocolate
  • A Sachet of cappuccino
  • Chocolate bar eg Mars Bar, Twix
  • Christmas decoration with message on back (no name) to give to prisoner

Bags can be paper or plastic but should not be sealed and left open at the top.

Please deliver to:

  • Rev’d Helena Whittaker by Friday 9th December

(Bags can be left at the St Mary’s Church office labelled for Helena or contact her directly to arrange to drop off with her)

We are also looking for Christmas decorations to hang on the tree we have on display in the centre of the prison.  If you can make a decoration and attach a short message (please do not include your name – it could be the name of the church), we will collect these at the same time as the gift bag.  This is in addition to the one to go in the gift bag.
