We hope that you will be able to make a contribution to this year’s Shoe Box Appeal. It would be lovely for St Mary’s to play a part in bringing joy into the lives of under privileged children overseas at Christmas.
You may find it easier to bring items to church and place them in the box provided. We will then make up the boxes in time for the deadline.
You can bring anything from the list below and put them in the box at any time, but the suggested dates and items may help you to plan regular donations , if you wish to do this.
IF YOU HAVE ANY SPARE SHOE BOXES AT HOME, OR LEFTOVER CHRISTMAS WRAPPING PAPER WHICH WE CAN USE, PLEASE BRING THESE AND PLACE THEM IN THE BOX.
Even the smallest donation will help.
If you would like to fill your own shoe box, the deadline is Sunday 29 October.
If you have any questions, would like to fill your own shoe box or to help out with the assembly of the boxes, please contact Vivien Sharples on 07772447727.
