Christmas Shoebox preparation

Preparations have begun in readiness for the shipment of shoeboxes filled with small gifts to children in need.  This is an annual project – and also involves local schools, who take and fill boxes for transport.

There are seven schools taking part this year and we have had increased support from our other “and new“ donors. In addition to the usual 4 Eastern European countries, Albania, Moldova, Montenegro and Romania, some of the 500 boxes anticipated will be going to Ukraine along with donations of woollens hats, jumpers and mittens.

The photo shows some of our members at work in sorting the boxes for transportation.
