Bags of Hope is a simple idea to bless Manchester, Salford and beyond, bringing hope in unexpected places and helping to make a practical difference in someone’s life. You and those you know can bring hope to people experiencing brokenness or poverty in these five different areas:
Asylum seekers | Vulnerable women | The homeless | Deprived local communities | Those affected by COVID-19
Each bag has a shopping list of ten items appropriate for the person you’re buying for. On the back of this, you can write a message to the person who will receive it.
The bag then needs to find its way back to Saint Philips Chapel Street where it will be passed on to those in need who we work with personally, or through our partner charities.
Please get in touch with us if:
– You would like to fill a bag (there’s a shopping list below, to get you started)
– You know an individual in need, or an organisation that would like to receive our bags
– Your church would like to run this project where you are
– You have received a Bag of Hope, and would like to bring it back for a refill!
