Can you fill a shoebox with little Christmas gifts for a family or elderly person? Can you do it by November 4th? This is the date by which Margaret Miskin needs them to be part of the Link to Hope Shoebox Appeal. The charity's aims are to help the poorest and most marginalised in several Eastern European countries, through education and social care and to change lives by releasing communities out of poverty. They deal directly with trusted partners who deliver the aid directly to the people that need it. They therefore see results very quickly and are very proud that money is not wasted and every penny that is given counts.
You could team up with a friend, or Margaret Miskin is happy to take money donations to do the shopping for you — donations of £2 would also be welcome to tape to those shoeboxes towards transport, etc. As soon as you have completed them, let Margaret have them or bring them into the Church office for her. Margaret has some spare boxes if you need one — telephone Aylesbury 422919.
