Every year Samaritan’s Purse delivers hundreds of shoe boxes, filled with gifts, to children in need around the world as part of Operation Christmas Child. This involves filling a shoe box with gifts to go to one of many children who have virtually nothing, often not even a home. There will be leaflets on Info Point this Sunday with additional information and guidelines on how to do this. Once you have made your shoe box/es the nearest collection point is Cuff Miller on Horsham Road, BN17 6BX who will receive them 1st – 18th November.

Hazel Wilkinson has about 30 flat pack pre-decorated shoeboxes, at 40p each, if anyone doesn’t have their own shoe box. You can pick one of more of these up from her porch (16 Bell Davies Road, BN17 6DU).
