Operation Christmas Child

21st November 2014

A big 'thank you' to everyone who sent in a shoe box this year. We had a slow start but ended up with 56 boxes, which will be making their way to Bosnia very soon.

This year, Samaritan's Purse hope to send 340,000 boxes. Since Operation Christmas Child began in 1993, more than 100 million shoeboxes have been given to children in over 130 countries.

A child only ever receives one box in their lifetime. A shoe box tells a child in need that they are loved...and we all know that love is the greatest gift of all, especially at Christmas time.
