Since 1990, Operation Christmas Child – an initiative of the Christian relief and
development agency Samaritan’s Purse – has been blessing underprivileged children
around the world with gift-filled shoeboxes wrapped and packed by children and adults in
It’s a campaign that thousands of schools, churches and other organisations from across
the UK get involved with between the September and November each year. In fact, it is
now the UK’s largest children’s Christmas appeal.
As this was such a great success last year, once again our school has decided to take part.
Our pupil councilors have recently delivered this years shoeboxes to the depot, take a look at the photos below.
Mrs Cummings and the Pupil Council delivered your generous donations to the distribution point on Monday 20th November 2017.
The Operation Christmas Child staff send their heartfelt thanks for all of the shoeboxes that had been so ‘carefully, lovingly and prayerfully packed’.
The children also watched a presentation about Operation Christmas Child and the distribution and destination of the shoeboxes.
