Shoeboxes for Operation Christmas Child

We are taking part in the Samaritan's Purse Operation Christmas Child Shoebox collection again this year where we ask families to pack shoeboxes of gifts to send to children in need around the world.

Please find below:

  • Information about the shoebox journey from your home to distribution around the world
  • Ideas about what you should pack
  • How to pack your shoebox, including how to make your suggested donation of £5 towards project costs including shipping
  • Labels for your shoebox to show whether it is for a girl or boy and for what age group
  • All About Me - a sheet your child might like to complete and include in the shoebox to be read by the child who receives it

You can find out more about Operation Christmas Child here.

Our shoeboxes will be collected from school on Tuesday 20 November so please can you bring them in from Thursday 15 November (no earlier, please) and by 9am on 20 November.

We hope you will enjoy packing your shoebox and thank you for taking part.
