Help us help a hurting child

MAY I through your paper inform all your readers about this year’s shoe box campaign?

The campaign is now underway and it is time to collect your boxes and fill them with small gifts to send to a hurting child in disadvantaged countries.

Leaflets are available from Tesco, Asda, Shoezone and Madheads in Rotherham, Pene at S62 Beauty in Parkgate and Ladies Fitness and Wellness in Wickersley and people can take their filled boxes to any of these places for collection.

The processing centre where all the boxes are checked and packed is based at Rotherham Pentecostal Church in Masborough and will be open to take boxes from November 12.

The centre will be open from Monday to Thursday 10am to 3pm and the last date for accepting boxes will be Monday November 25.

Last year we thanked the generous people of Rotherham for donating nearly 4,000 boxes. Please come on board this year and help us exceed last year’s total.

More information can be found on the Operation Christmas Child UK website or by calling Andrew on 07946 462851.

Please come on board and help us to bring a smile to a hurting child this Christmas.
