Toys for under privileged children in Bury Social Services care

Toy Service - All Saints' Wickhambrook 5th Dec 9.30am - Toys for under privileged children in Bury Social Services care

Every year on the first Sunday of December at 9.30am we hold our Toy Service at All Saints' Wickhambrook. This used to be a Wickhambrook church event but has expanded to be a Bansfield Benefice-wide event. During the service presents are presented by the congregation at the altar for later donation by the benefice to Bury St Edmunds Social Services.

Social Services in Bury are always very pleased with the donations we give and they tell us that it makes such a huge difference to the children in their care who otherwise would receive few gifts at Christmas.

People who can not or do not wish to attend the service but still want to donate presents can do so by dropping off their donation at the Rectory next to All Saints' church, Wickhambrook. Further details can be obtained by emailing

We ask that the presents are wrapped and have a label on them indicating whether the present is for a boy or girl as well as the age of the child to receive it.

Please think of others less fortunate at this festive time and donate a present.

Further details can be found at

Thank you

Remembrance Sunday - 14th November

This year to mark the 70th anniversary of the Battle of Britain we are holding the service at St Margaret's Stradishall. Stradishall is to be the venue since it was the site of RAF Stradishall.

We look forward to seeing you there.
