Region 1 - Brixton Sai Centres Royal Marsden Hospital Christmas Present Collection

Members of Brixton Sai Centre once again showed their generosity despite tough economic times by supporting the Centre’s annual Christmas present collection. As in previous years, the beneficiaries were the children of the Royal Marsden Cancer Hospital in Sutton, Surrey. At a time when people think about spending time with family and loved ones, the loneliness of being in hospital, especially with a serious illness such as cancer, can really be painfully felt.

In all, a grand total of 58 gifts were kindly donated by members. Each one was lovingly wrapped; some even had sweetly-worded gift tags such as, “To a cute little girl aged 4+. Love Santa.” It was clear that a lot of effort and love had been put in by members when preparing and wrapping each gift.

All the gifts were delivered to the Royal Marsden on Christmas Eve, following in Santa Claus’s own footsteps! The staff were amazed at the bags of gifts received and thanked the Centre and its members for their kindness.

During this holy time, we are reminded of the words of Jesus in the Bible:

“It is more blessed to give than to receive” (Acts 20:35).
