Every year the Samaritans Purse charity invites people of all ages to fill a shoe box with gifts. The charity then arranges for these boxes to be delivered by hand by local overseas partners to some of the poorest children in the world – regardless of their nationality, political or religious background.
Best of all, through the gifts that you give and the booklet of Bible stories that are given to the children, they are able to hear the true meaning of Christmas – God`s gift of His Son Jesus for us all.
If you feel you can donate a shoebox please take an information leaflet. these will be available from the back of the church from the 23rd of October. Then you can deliver your box to the church hall on any Sunday morning during November. If you do not have a suitable box, Ready made flat- pack boxes are available price 40p. Please ask.
Our church has been donating boxes since 2003 when 23 were given one year we managed to send 41 boxes.
