Last year we filled 100 boxes for Operation Christmas,Child and are hoping to fill 100 boxes again this year.
If you want to be involved you can contribute this year in various ways:
1.Fill the box yourself with your gifts. Add a ‘wow’ item such as a doll, cuddly toy or deflated football with pump. Then fill your shoebox with a selection of fun toys, hygiene items and school supplies. See our Gift Suggestions below for more ideas. , suitable for a child aged 10 to 14, stick the boy/girl label on the box, and bring it into church. Please give the £3 shipping donation to Janet Lazarus (we will send all the donations electronically together)
2. You can donate gifts for a child aged 10 to 14 and we will fill the shoe box for you.
3. You can donate some money and we will buy the gifts and fill the boxes.
Janet will be taking our shoe boxes to the collection point during the first week in November so she would like to have completed boxes by the end of October, please.
