We are delighted to have been informed that All Saints Parish Church have supported the 2018 Link to Hope Shoebox Appeal.

Link for Hope shoebox appeal 2018

They have told us that they “Completed 41 boxes in all, 29 for families and 12 for elderly people. Quite different from doing the operation Christmas child, it needed a whole new way of working and thinking”.

Link to Hope ask people to fill a Shoebox for a family – not just a child. Their list contains items for all family members and includes items such a shower gel/shampoo, family games, stationary items, gift for mum and dad as well as sweets, soft toys, hats, scarves etc.

The annual Family Shoebox Appeal has been running since 1992 and has delivered smiles to thousands of people in Eastern Europe over the years. They have sent over 800,000 shoeboxes to hundreds of different locations!

It’s a really simple idea, anyone can get involved. More information about Link to Hope can be found here on their website.

Thank you for all of your hard work - Please start saving shoeboxes ready for next year!
