Faith in Action!

The Hamilton Wesley Uniting Church with Hunter Women Artists and Friends present its annual Trees & Art for Charity.

There are 16 beautiful trees that have been decorated by local organisations. The church at 150 Beaumont Street, Hamilton, is open for viewing Monday to Friday 11am to 2pm and Saturdays 11am to 1pm.

Trusty Mini Vinnies members from St Columba’s Primary School, Adamstown, met with Mrs O’Neill, Ms Campbell, Mr Hartigan & Ms Buchanan at the Hamilton Wesley Uniting Church to decorate a tree with amazing sequinned baubles and Christmas decorations as part of an ecumenical charity fundraiser to support those in need at Christmas.

St Columba’s especially thanks the parents for allowing their children to be involved in this way and for transporting children to the event after school. What impressed the teachers most was the manner in which students engaged with other members of the public – both young and old – who were also there to support various charities.  Not to mention the great Christmas spread they enjoyed including White Christmas and loads of lollies!

The Christmas tree fundraiser supports our designated charity – St Vincent de Paul Youth − but the school now needs people to go in and vote so we can help others at this time of year. Please help by dropping a dollar or two into the envelope and marking it Tree number 16. Be sure to support the café whilst you are there or buy some special Christmas gifts.
