A message from Sandra Brooks: We are starting to collect empty shoe boxes (later to be filled with gifts for children who otherwise will receive nothing at Christmas) - average size boxes please can be left in any of the three churches and I will arrange to collect them.


I aim to have boxes ready for distribution and filling by mid-October. Please also look and see if you have any small soft toys in good condition that can be put into the boxes. Chas and I are so grateful that each year we have been doing Operation Christmas Child we have received such a wonderful response from all our three churches, thank you so much.
