This is a simple way to make a real difference to the life of a child at Christmas. Can you find the time to fill a shoe box with a few inexpensive gifts? Last year, our shoebox gifts went to children in Albania, Belarus, Nigeria, Bosnia, Moldova and Serbia.
If you wish to prepare a box or boxes, just follow the instructions on the latest leaflet, including how to provide £5 per box towards transport costs. Leaflets are available from me, at the back of church or from the office. Empty pre-decorated flat-pack shoe boxes are also available from me at 50p per box.
We also value donated items such as knitted hats, A5 sized notebooks, soaps, and small toys (must be new) etc. Please take your shoebox gifts or fillers to the church but only during National Collections Week (15th to 22nd November). The church will be open Monday to Thursday 10:00 a.m. to 4 p.m. or Friday 10:00 a.m. to noon, during that week.
As an alternative, you can prepare a box entirely online. It costs £20 (which includes the £5 for shipping) and you can choose which items you want to go in your box. You can also include a photo and a message. Please use the following link:
If you have any questions, please contact Andrew du Boulay firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you so much for your support. Every box we send lets a child know that God loves them and that they are not forgotten.
