Operation Christmas Child - finished for 2014
We are running the Operation Christmas child appeal again this year.
So please can you provide shoe boxes, wrapping paper and a ‘shipping’ donation.
They ask for £3 per shoe box.
We will be collecting different things each week.
Many of these things can be bought from pound shops or a supermarket so can be purchased quiet cheaply.
All items must be new.
See for more details.
12th Oct: Toys e.g. teddy, doll, small musical instrument, ball, car.
19th Oct: Educational supplies e.g. pens, stickers, chalk (notebooks and writing pencils not needed) and wrapping paper
26th Oct: Hygiene items e.g. flannel, toothbrush, toothpaste, hair bands and clips (no soap or combs needed).
2nd Nov: Hat, gloves, scarf, sunglasses, cap, bangles, necklaces.
9th Nov: Sweets (no chocolate and sell by date of at least March 2015) and shipping donation - £3 per shoe box.
No: food (except sweets), medicine, war-related items, fragile items, liquids, dangerous items or books with words.
Please feel free to do your own family Christmas box and bring this to church by 9th November.
