Love-in-a-Box Filling & Coffee Morning Saturday 2nd November 10am
Each year our Church packs up shoe boxes to send via the Charity Love-in-Box to children in need in Eastern Europe. To read more about the charity click this link to their website
We have over 100 shoe boxes wrapped and ready to be filled on Saturday 2nd November. This is the day when all the items needed to fill the boxes are laid out on tables all around our hall and helpful volunteers walk around with a box adding all the items.
The cost of transporting each box is £4 so we also run a bring & buy stall and have cakes and refreshment for sale too.
This is what we put in the boxes:
