OPERATION CHRISTMAS CHILD - SAMARITANS PURSE - SHOEBOX GIFT
It was looking like we weren't going to be able to contribute to the shoebox appeal, this year. Samaritans Purse were struggling to find a warehouse in our area. I am now happy to say they have found one and it's full steam ahead.
Leaflets and boxes are on the trestle table at the back of church!
If you are filling your box with gifts for the first time, please read the leaflet carefully and choose suggested gifts, making sure to leave out those not recommended too.
These boxes go to children all over the world, it may be the only gift they get this Christmas!
BOXES MUST BE FILLED AND RETURNED TO CHURCH BY SUNDAY 26th NOVEMBER AT THE LATEST, TO TAKE TO THE WAREHOUSE ON THE 27th
