Stephen Timms MP to join Beckton worshipers in support of children’s charity
Stephen Timms MP will join Beckton worshipers for a special service in support of a festive children’s charity appeal.
In hour of its fifth anniversary, City Chapel will host a special service at Ellen Wilkinson Primary School, Tollgate Road, on Sunday morning in partnership with Operation Christmas Child.
Launched by children’s charity Samaritans Purse every year, the seasonal appeal aims to brighten the lives of some of the world’s poor and neglected children.
People are asked to fill shoeboxes with everyday items such as toys, sweets and educational materials which will be delivered to children in 13 countries in Africa, Eastern Europe and Asia.
Beginning at 11am the service will feature City Chapel Gospel Band and in addition to Mr Timms, MP for East Ham, a number of the borough’s councillors are expected to attend.
