6. Northmead Winter Appeal (30th April – 21st May)

During the month of May, we are partnering with Anglicare to help those in need. We will go into our local community and shopping centres to ask people to give towards Anglicare’s Winter Appeal.






There are three key areas you and your Gospel Team can be involved:

  1. Donate yourself (Sun 30th April – Sun 14th May) – food, clothing, and blankets etc. Bring your items to the church and place them in the Winter Appeal buckets.
  2. Letterbox appeal postcards (Round 1: Sat 6th – Sun 14th May; Round 2: Sat 13th – Sun 21st May) – On the first weekend you place a Northmead Winter Appeal postcard in letterboxes in certain streets of Northmead and Winston Hills. The following weekend you knock on those doors with members of your Gospel Team and say you’re collecting food (as listed on the Appeal postcard) for the Winter Appeal. We will have Thank-you Packs for everyone (see below).
  3. Donations from Northmead and Winston Hills shoppers (Round 1: 11-13 May; Round 2: 18-20 May) – We plan to have tables set up outside a few shops in Northmead and Winston Hills. Members of Gospel Teams or groups of friends are rostered to stand behind the tables, giving a Winter Appeal Shopping Lists to shoppers, inviting them to contribute certain food items towards Anglicare’s Winter Appeal.
