Operation Christmas Child
Will you send some love in a shoebox to a needy child this Christmas?
Our church have been supporting Operation Christmas Child for a number of years, glad of the opportunity to show God's love to children in need around the world. In this difficult year, it will be even more of a blessing to the recipients.
The operation involves packing a shoebox (provided) with a range of items suitable for a boy or girl, aged 2 - 4, 5 - 9 or 10 - 14. We include a special gift, like a cuddly toy or doll, some toys/games, some hygiene items and school supplies, plus, if possible a £5 donation to cover shipping etc. See their website for more details: https://www.samaritans-purse.org.uk/
If shopping is problematic, it is possible to pack a shoebox online, for £20, at https://shoeboxonline.samaritans-purse.org.uk/
Please consider taking part in this brilliant project. We can provide shoeboxes and a leaflet, delivered to your door, if that would be helpful. Completed shoeboxes can be delivered to The Well, St. Martin's Court, between 2nd and 6th November, or we can collect them around that time.
Please text Chris Douglas or call on 07885 349128 for leaflets, shoeboxes or queries. Or you can call the church office here at The Well 01784 240660.
Donors tend to find packing a shoebox for a child a very satisfying activity, so please join in, if you can.
