Operation Christmas Child Shoeboxes

In 2017 a total of 211 boxes were packed by St Theresa’s Wednesday Club, visitors to the Place on the Hill, and at the packing evening. Thank you to all who helped and also those who brought along completed boxes – because of you many children in Liberia will experience the delight of opening a special Christmas box filled with wonderful goodies.

In November 2016 a total of 238 boxes were packed and sent to Operation Christmas Child for onward distribution to children who would otherwise not receive a present. The knitters of Stansted and Bishop’s Stortford came up trumps again with hats, scarves, gloves, puppets and bags; the tennis club gave a ball to put in every box; Millways donated paper; and many people generously gave the other items.  Thank you very much to everyone who contributed; because of you 238 children will experience the delight of opening a special Christmas box filled with wonderful goodies.
