Operation Christmas Child

During assembly on September 26th we launched this year’s shoebox appeal as part of Operation Christmas Child.

Operation Christmas Child is organised by the charity Samaritan’s Purse UK and collects thousands of shoe boxes from around the UK, wrapped up with Christmas paper and filled with presents so that they can be distributed to those who do not have the joy of opening presents at Christmas time as we do. They are able to reach 100 countries each year!

If you want to join in, then please do and here is a link to their website in case you are unsure of what to fill your shoe box with: http://www.samaritans-purse.org.uk/what-we-do/operation-christmas-child/how-to-pack-a-shoebox/
