More than 50 shoeboxes filled with essentials and gifts were sent to some of the poorest children in Eastern Europe by parishioners of All Saints Church in Wragby last year.
This Saturday your help is needed to surpass that number and make a child’s Christmas extra special. Boxes will be filled at the church between 10am and 12 noon before being passed on to charity, Samaritan’s Purse.
Items suitable for shoeboxes are: small toys, soft toys, cars, tennis balls, educational supplies such as pens, pencils, rubbers, colouring books, notebooks, hygiene items: toothbrushes, toothpaste, brush, comb, wrapped soap, sweets – note the sell by date; gloves, scarves and hats.
Items not allowed include food, medicine, war-related items, fragile/glass items, liquids including shampoo, soap, bubble bath and scissors.
