Once again we are thinking about Christmas in October, as we, at St. Mary’s Monxton, are taking part in a national shoe-box scheme that sends useful gifts to under-privileged children in Eastern Europe.
Amport School have been participating in this for some years now and we thought that as a church we would like to join in the fun once more. We hope you will too, unless, of course, you have already done so with the school.
If you decide to take part, you could either make up a complete box or let us have individual items so that we can make up communal boxes. If you would like more information on the individual items please phone Charmian or Valerie as below. Each box costs £3 to send. We will underwrite this cost but any donations would be gratefully received.
We intend to gather all the boxes for our Family Service on Sunday 26th October at 9.15 a.m.
If you are able to help please call either Charmian on 710221, or Valerie on 772030
St. Mary’s, Monxton
