Janet Lazarus has bought flat pack shoe boxes from Operation Christmas Child again for this year’s Christmas appeal.
Since 1990 Operation Christmas Child has been blessing underprivileged children around the world with gift-filled shoe boxes.
You can contribute this year in various ways:
1. If you would like to fill a shoe box, please take an Operation Christmas Child leaflet for instructions and a flat pack shoe box. Fill the box with your gifts, suitable for a child aged 10 to 14, stick the boy/girl label on the box, and bring it into church. Please give the £5 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.
For more information and videos about the shoes boxes being recieved please go to the Operation Christmas Child website
