Shoeboxes for Samaritans Purse – Operation Christmas Child 2018:

A big THANK YOU to everybody who donated items for the shoeboxes and came along to church to help fill them.  We had a lovely afternoon and  filled 43 boxes – an amazing amount, slightly exceeding our target of 40.  Thank you so much for your support and generosity.  The boxes have now all been taken to one of the local collecting points (Brittains Furniture store in St Neots).    So, how many will we fill next year?  Last year it was 32, this year 43 ….. should we aim for 50 in 2019?  Why not come along next year and help us achieve our new target? THANK YOU.
