New socks for the box: Canon Wray’s Sock Appeal returns to Manchester Cathedral this January

Are there piles of lovely but unwanted pairs of socks lingering under your pile of Christmas presents or spilling out of your sock drawer? Manchester Cathedral can find a good home for any pairs of new, warm socks that people would like to donate or buy to support the Booth Centre in looking after those who find themselves homeless at the turn of the New Year.

The Canon Wray Sock Appeal is back for its second year and you can donate your socks right up until the official anniversary of this historic legacy on the 21 January.

Cash for Kids - Mission Christmas 2015

Cash for Kids - Mission Christmas 2015

Manchester has the fourth highest levels of child poverty in the UK, with one in three children going to bed in the evening without a hot meal, or living in a house without central heating.

For this reason, we are really excited to be supporting Key 103’s Mission Christmas appeal to do something about this. We are asking all who can to buy an unwrapped gift for a child of any age up to eighteen years to donate it to the Mission Christmas appeal.

Manchester Cathedral will be one of the city centre drop-off points for the appeal and gifts can be dropped off here during our usual opening hours. The last date for collection will be Wednesday 16 December.

Mission Christmas will not change the poverty statistics, but by supporting the Mission Christmas campaign you will be helping to bring the magic of Christmas to more children this Christmas Day.
