We wrapped and filled shoeboxes after the service on Sunday 3rd - we filled 53 boxes with a couple of spares to maybe be able to fill soon.

Christmas 2020

With Covid-19 still causing havoc with everyone's lives at the moment, Shoeboxes are likely to be a bit more of a challenge this year. However, the places these boxes end up are likely to be much more ravaged by this virus than we are, so we are going to continue to fill as many boxes as possible. 

There are more craft suggestions this year than there have been in the past. You can find some ideas here:  https://www.samaritans-purse.org.uk/occ-quality-crafts/ 

Hand knitted hats, mittens, scarves and hand puppets are also welcomed again - any patterns or wool needed, message church and we will supply!
