Shoebox Appeal

Every year parishioners fill shoeboxes with Christmas gifts for disadvantaged children throughout the world. These are sent through Operation Christmas Child to be distributed in time for Christmas. Gifts include new toys and games, hats and gloves, paper and pens/crayons and hygiene items eg soap and toothbrushes. Leaflets are available each autumn giving full details of what can and cannot be included and when the shoeboxes need to be returned to church.
