Shoebox Sunday BrunchShoeboxes 02

At the beginning of November, Woodditton's regular Brunch@11 was turned over to packing shoeboxes for Operation Christmas Child.

We welcomed visitors from Warboys and provided brunch for 40 people. 174 shoeboxes were packed and are now on their way (most probably to Eastern Europe).

The boxes are packed with items such as toys, sweets, pencils, crayons, hats, gloves and toiletries for children who may never have received any kind of Christmas gift before.  

A big ‘Thank You’ to all who contributed.
