Despite the poor weather, over 350 people joined us for our Christingle trail, in conjunction with The Children’s Society, over the first two weekends of December.
The Very Reverend Nicola Sullivan, Dean of Southwell, said:
“Christingle is all about the light of Jesus shining in the darkness, and this year it has been wonderful to see families exploring the Minster grounds with the Christingle Trail, having fun, and learning more about Christingle and its message of hope. A real highlight in our very different 2020 Christmas programme!”
Jane Foster, Relationship Manager at The Children’s Society added:
“We are so grateful to Southwell Mister for keeping the spirit of Christingle alive in such a difficult year. It was fantastic to see families enjoying the trail and the look on children’s faces as they received their bags. Christingle traditionally raises over £1.2 million a year for some of the country’s most disadvantaged children and young people. This year, we have needed Christingle more than ever to keep hope alive for young people. If you missed the trail you can still see the virtual Christingle here and can still donate here.
Thank you to all our staff and volunteers who made it such a success and a huge thank you to all the families who came and joined in.
