SHOEBOXES

Our annual Shoebox Weekend is one of the biggest events in our church calendar. In December 2021, our team of dedicated volunteers and members of the community packed over 500 shoeboxes for the charity Teams4u. These will make their way to vulnerable children in Romania or Belarus in time for Christmas. All this would not be possible without your generosity in donations which we collect all year round. Below is a list of items we can include in our boxes: 

For children:

 

  • Teddies/soft Toys

  • Soaps and flannels

  • Toothbrush and toothpaste

  • Drawing/writing books

  • Pencils, pens, rubbers, pencil sharpeners

  • Pencil cases

  • Sweets

  • Small toys i.e. cars, balls, games

  • Hats, gloves and scarves

  • Hairbrushes, combs, hairbands

For home boxes:
  • Dishcloths/tea towels

  • Candles

  • Toiletries (soaps, flannels)

  • Headscarves for adults

  • Socks/underwear for adults

Every item donated will be very gratefully received by the families. Thank you.
