There are a number of ways in which you can take part in our annual shoebox appeal, even though the children cannot come and pack them at church this year.

-You can pack a box online via the Operation Christmas Child website.

-You can pack your own box, we have spare boxes, then give to Linda or Diana to take to the collection centre. Full details on the website.

-You can contribute items or money to the boxes that will be packed by Diana and Linda. For each box we need: toys- soft toys, balls, cars, small dolls etc- stationery items, toothbrush, soap, face cloth, hat, scarf or gloves and each box costs £5 to send.

We cannot send: food, sweets, toothpaste, liquid, books with words and nothing war related.

Please can you give contributions to Diana or Linda by the end of October. We can collect from you or from church. Money can be given to us or paid into the church account labelled ‘Christmas boxes’.

For any further information, please talk to Linda or Diana, or look at the Operation Christmas Child website.
