MacMillan Coffee Morning
Coffee Morning is at St Andrew's on Monday 24th September, 11am-1pm.
Do call in for coffee, cake and to help a good cause!
Today, shoeboxes will be
available to fill for children living in poverty or crisis overseas. A simple
Christmas Shoebox gift is a "Gift of Love" for a child who has never received
such a gift before. It is also a symbol of hope that someone, somewhere, cared
enough to pack a gift meant just for them. This year, you will also be able to
pack, if you so wish, a box for the home which could include items for babies
and the home etc. Also, please note that the age ranges have changed slightly.
All the information you will need is contained in the leaflet inside the box
and I hope you will be able to take one and fill it as generously as you can.
Last year your shoebox gift was one of 29,467 sent to Bosnia lovingly packed in
the UK., and we thank God for the thousands of children that received them.
Thanks, Sheila H
