Each year we collect toys to be sent to the Wood Street Mission who in turn distribute them to needy families in the Manchester Area. This year it has again been requested that toys are NOT gift-wrapped. Please bring gifts along to any of the services on 4th December 2016.
Wood Street Mission is a registered children’s charity based in the centre of Manchester. They help children and families living in Manchester and Salford with everyday items most of us take for granted. All the families they support are affected by poverty. Wood Street’s mission is to help alleviate the effects of poverty on local children and their families through practical help. Wood Street’s vision is that all children in Manchester and Salford should live a life free from poverty. Wood Street Mission is committed to help achieve this through offering practical help and services to families and supporting them as they try to lift themselves out of poverty. They encourage families to ensure their children engage in education and develop their learning skills so they may live an independent life in their adulthood.
Wood Street Mission is based at 26 Wood Street, Manchester M3 3EF. Registered Children’s Charity Number 1078337. They are just off Deansgate in the Spinningfields area of Manchester and adjacent to the John Ryland’s Library.
