Love In A Box 23rd of October

We are participating in the Love in a Box scheme again this year. These boxes go to Eastern Europe in time for Christmas.

They are received by children whom would not receive any gifts at all, if it wasn’t for the Mustard Seed Relief Missions organising this campaign.

Please come along to the Good Shepherd in Roewood Road Holbury, and help us wrap and fill shoeboxes with Christmas gifts for these children. Everyone is welcome and it is great fun.

We also need donations of gifts (listed below) plus donations of money to cover the cost of transport. Each box costs £4 to send.

For more information contact Carol on 023 8089 1488
