Margaret Miskin: September 2015
It's that time of the year where we start thinking about the yearly 'Shoebox Appeal'.
A family or elderly shoebox can be filled for as little as £10. (Click here for ideas)
Receiving a shoebox gives considerable joy and love to those who have lost everything. This will be a very difficult year for Link to Hope as the refugee crisis in Bulgaria & Ukraine is escalating so please, please, please help them to help others.
Some members of the church have told me they find it difficult to buy items to fill a shoebox, so this year I will put a box in the coffee bar where items can be placed and I will then make up the shoeboxes, or if you prefer you can donate some money (direct to me please) and I will purchase items for the shoeboxes.
If you do not have a shoebox please speak to me as I have some spares in my garage. Similarly, if you have any other questions, just get in touch. Margaret Miskin — Tel 01296 422919. Email: email@example.com
