The final count is in: 160 shoe boxes, packed with essential items and small luxuries for children who would otherwise have very little at Christmas. Many thanks for your generosity — you can see what it looks like in the picture below. Many thanks to everyone who contributed so generously — you totally wiped out last year’s total of 110 boxes, which itself was a great achievement. Please remember in your prayers all those who will benefit from this year’s appeal. Thank you also to the volunteers who collected the boxes, organised the sale of contents, sorted out the boxes and are seeing to their delivery.
