Shoeboxes for Families and elders living in Eastern Europe

A note from Fiona: ‘Link to Hope’

Once again this charity is asking for Shoeboxes for families and elders living in poverty in Eastern Europe.

There are leaflets at the back of St Mary’s with details of how you can fill a life with smiles this Christmas by the gift of a Shoebox to either a Family or an elder couple.
Friendly Circle are filling elder boxes at their meeting on 11th October - if you have any spare shoeboxes or gifts - please pass to me or leave at the back of St Mary’s and I will ensure that they get to a good home.

With many thanks
