Link to Hope
This year we are once again collecting shoe boxes for needy children.
Once again we are collecting shoe boxes for Link to Hope. This charity sends boxes at Christmas to Romania, Ukraine, Bulgaria and Moldova.
You are asked to fill a box for a family or an elderly couple. Leaflets are available at the Methodist Church which will advise you of what is needed.
You are asked to contribute £3 towards the travel costs of each box.
If you cannot fill a box yourself the charity will do it for you at £20 a box.
Please have the boxes ready by Nov 7th. They can be left at the church before then.
The idea is that all members of the family share in the contents of the box, so it is not all children’s toys but gifts for every individual.
If you have any questions ask Jill Howell
All boxes must be at the Church by Nov 7th ready for delivery to the warehouses. This is early but necessary to ensure the boxes arrive at their destination in time for Christmas
Please see the web link to see what content is now allowed and how to wrap it please.
Last year in 2020 despite the pandemic we managed to send 22 boxes and £75 in donations from Whitacre and will be grateful for all donations this year.
