So many people have asked us if we will “be doing shoe boxes this year” that we can’t possibly say no!
We will be acting as an Operation Christmas Child shoe box Collection Centre during the first three weeks of November:
Tuesdays: 1:00 pm – 4:00 pm
Wednesdays 09:30 am – 12:30 pm
Thursdays 10:00 am – 2:00 pm
Fridays 1:30 pm – 4:30 pm
Just turn up on any of those days and stay as long as you want. We’ll have the coffee on and will be running some videos showing the shoe boxes being distributed – the joy on the faces of the children is something else!
“Do I need to label the box?”
Yes, but we will have plenty of printed sticky labels for you to use.
“What if I can’t get hold of a shoe box?”
We will have a small stock of plain shoe boxes (free) and some pre-decorated boxes (50p each)
“What should I put in the box?”
There’s a step by step guide here
“Can I drop off at other times?”
If our doors are open, just pop in – but the coffee might not be ready if you come outside of ‘official times’!!
“Can I just give a donation or bring a few things for you to put into a box for me?”
Absolutely – just pop in when we are open. Some community groups are collecting gifts each week already.
“I’ve got another question!”
