Operation Christmas Child 2018 - Shoebox Appeal

Posted by R.Broad on October 20, 2018

UPDATE Nov 14 - 2018 - A great big thanks to every-one who contributed items, money and/or time as this year Young Saints have produced a record 94 shoeboxes which will be sent this week - as can be seen from the picture above they make a great difference. Well done and thanks also to the organisers for all the time and effort they put in.


Young Saints will be making up shoeboxes again this year for Operation Christmas Child. They will be for boys or girls aged 5-9. We would welcome donations of toys, stationary, hygiene items, sweets, gloves etc. Please check leaflets in church to see what is allowed, as there are some restrictions. Items should be new. Donations of money are also needed, as it costs £5 to transport each box. Shoeboxes (ideally wrapped in colourful paper) also welcome. Please bring your donations before Sunday 11th November. Last year, we donated over 80 boxes and it would be great to match that this year! If you have any questions, please ask Jenny or Hazel Wilks

Who received the 2017 shoeboxes and sent this message to the congregation of All Saints:-


Thanks to the Leadership and entire membership of All Saints Church for the wonderful Christmas Gifts you sent to the Children of Christ International Church through Samaritan's Purse (Operation Christmas Child).
