Link to Hope
This year we are once again collecting shoe boxes for needy children but there are a few changes.
Firstly the charity we are supporting this year is Link to Hope. They send boxes to Eastern Europe but also ask for boxes for elderly people,if you would prefer to fill such a box.The contents are much the same. There are leaflets at the Methodist church listing possible articles for your shoe box.You can now send bottles of shampoo and bath gel in your box but no scissors or toy guns. Please wrap the shoe box completely so that it cannot be opened. This is another change .You are asked to contribute £2 per box to cover transport costs and attach it to the outside of the box.
All boxes must be at the Church by Nov.1st 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 we sent about 40 boxes from Whitacre and will be grateful for all donations this year.
Please remember the deadline to get your boxes to Whitacre Chapel this year is November 1st.
