Christmas Parcel Packing 2023 (session 1)

08/12/2023, 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

at Selly Oak Quaker Meeting House, Selly Oak, Birmingham

We are looking forward to our annual evening of fun, packing Christmas parcels for the families of prisoners and others and hope that many of you will join us.  There are packing session on Friday evening and Saturday morning: you are welcome to come to either or both.

The Quaker Christmas Parcels Committee hopes this year to return to packing the pre-covid number of parcels (1008 up from 870) as there is so much need.

Please don’t feel shy of inviting your friends to join in this annual event which for many sets the tone for the festive season.  Fun hats are not obligatory but will doubtlessly be much appreciated!

As parking can be tight on Saturday, please consider car sharing or public transport. Buses 61, 63, X21 from the City Centre (20 mins) to Oak Tree Lane (walk 4 mins), bus 11 (outer circular) to Oak Tree Lane or train to Selly Oak station (walk 10 minutes). Alternative parking on Langley’s Road (come in through back gate) or St Mary’s church drive opposite the MH (check the newsfeed nearer the time for availability).

The increase in parcels, coupled with the rising cost of goods, means that the appeal is especially important this year. You can make secure donation online, or for alternative ways to donate please contact Mina Tilt (treasurer to the Christmas Parcels Committee):
