What a wonderful tree covered in hands made by children and families supported by Home-Start. It was on display at The St. Laurence Christmas Tree Festival in Stroud. Thanks to our Chairman, Elizabeth Ewart-James, who addressed the congregation at the Carol Service amidst the trees and lights.
Angela and Kathy did a sterling job promoting Home-Start to the crowds in Dursley. Thanks to everyone who took part in the Tombola and helped to raise £80, which will go towards supporting families in the area.
