operation christmas child (samaritan's purse)
This year we collected 156 shoeboxes - a fantastic amount!
We were extremely pleased to support Operation Christmas Child once again this year. This is such an exciting campaign, and incredible to think that everyone of the gifts will bless a child somewhere, and bring amazing joy to their life.
Before leaving the UK, the shoeboxes will be taken to Meltham, where the contents are checked for Customs purposes. From there they will be packed into large outer cartons and loaded onto lorries or containers to go abroad. Every lorry holds about 10,000 shoeboxes and the organisation hope to send 100 lorries in total from the UK this year.
