Christmas Charity Collections
Christmas is a good time to think of others who are less fortunate than ourselves. Here at Hollywell we have chosen a selection of charities that we would like to help:
Save the Children
By popping on your pullovers on Friday 14 December and donating £1 each to Save the Children, you could help save children’s lives around the world (donations to be handed in to their teacher on the day). We will also be collecting donations at our Church Service on Thursday 20th December, 10.00am.

Notts Blind Eye for the Homeless
Notts Blind Eye are a local group of volunteers who take to the streets of Nottingham every Sunday morning to help the homeless. ‘The people we meet are the unfortunate few who were unable to make the shelters or for their own reasons find it easier to sleep on the streets. We don’t judge the people we meet, we simply offer them a hot drink, porridge, snacks and clothing and if they have a dog we offer dog food.’
We are collecting warm items of clothing, coats, sweatshirts, hats, scarves, gloves, especially appreciated at this time of year are sleeping bags & blankets (not duvets). If you are able to donate, please ensure blankets/clothing are in good, clean condition.
Who knows, the simple act of kindness of giving some food or a blanket could help turn around somebody's life but if it doesn’t it will still help them overcome hunger or cold.

Since 1993, Babbington Rescue has been there to help and rehome unwanted cats & dogs.
Here at Hollywell, we would like to help the animals keep warm and cared for in the cold weather; we are collecting old blankets (not duvets please), towels, newspaper & treats.
If you would like to give more physical help why not visit Babbington and walk the dogs? Members of the public are invited to visit between 10.30am to 3.30pm 7 days a week to walk the rescue dogs. This does not need to be pre-booked.
For more information for supporting Babbington, see: https://www.babbington-rescue.org.uk/
Cats Protection Nottingham Adoption Centre first opened in 1992 and is the only Cats Protection centre in Nottingham.
We are collecting any food, treat or toy donations in lieu of their proposed visit to Hollywell.

Please send any donations via the classroom before Thursday 20th December.
Thank you for your generosity!
