Merry Christmas Link

Oh sorry, it's only September, but it's time to start thinking about the Link to Hope Shoebox Appeal as the leaflets have just arrived. There are some changes to the normal format. Every box must contain the 6 items which are printed at the top of the leaflet and then another 5 or more items from the Family or Elderly list. For the first time in 9 years the cost of sending a shoebox has risen from £2 to £3 to help towards transportation costs. Do you want to be more eco-friendly? If so, instead of felt tip pens put in coloured pencils and a sharpener, and instead of plastic bottles of shampoo/shower gel put in extra bars of soap, as they can be used for cleaning people and their clothes.

Last year, many people donated cash so that I could fill a shoebox on their behalf, and I'm willing to do that again this year. Over 40,000 shoeboxes were sent out last year, to families and seniors in Moldova, Romania, Bulgaria and Ukraine.

Thank you to everyone who, year in and year out, supports this worthwhile cause. If you have any queries, then please do get in touch with me. Margaret Miskin (01296 422919).

Leaflets are in The Welcome Space but for details from the Link to Hope website, click here.
