IKEA CHRISTMAS DONATION 2018

 

We are hugely grateful for the generosity of Ikea Coventry who chose to help Cyrenians this Christmas. A lot of thought had gone into the items donated and they were very much appreciated by the homeless and vulnerable at our Christmas Day Event at the Methodist Central Hall, which has been held in Coventry City Centre for over 30 years. The new design blue Ikea bags with zips were the perfect size for guests to take donated clothes & gifts away and keep them dry.  The fleece blankets and body warmers will keep them warm througout the winter and water flasks that can be refilled to stop them getting dehyrated.  They also donated Christmas Decorations & Chocolate bars and staff did their own collection of toiletries and money!

Special thanks to Anna Mondielli, Jo Wilkins, Susan Arnold and the rest of the team for nominating us and making this possible.
