Operation Christmas Child – Update

Between the Prenton & Wallasey Village churches we packed and sent over 130 boxes this year. A tremendous effort once again and a record number this year.

We’ve had wonderful contributions of knitted hats, gloves, scarves bags, purses and puppets.

The amount of hand knitted goods particularly demonstrates a long term commitment to this project … it’s never too early to start preparing for next year’s boxes of love so get those needles moving and pick up bargains as you see them in the shops. (I’m happy to store items for shoeboxes if you don’t have room for them!)

2017 saw nearly 770,000 boxes sent from the UK and 11.4 million globally. We were part of that and we made a difference.

Thank you and let’s continue making a difference.

Heather
