To help keep those packing refreshed tea and coffee was available and there was a cake stall, bring and buy stall and books for sale to help raise funds towards the cost of transporting the boxes.
Coordinator’s Jean and David Shail said “It was another wonderful day with so many people taking part, working hard and enjoying themselves. We achieved another record with 360 boxes filled with a toy, sweets, a flannel and soap, toothpaste and toothbrush, a notebook and pencil cases and a hat. scarf and gloves. These were dedicated at our morning service on Sunday and have now been taken to the Operation Christmas Church warehouse in Worcester ready to be sent to Belarus. We are so grateful for the wonderful support for all those who made and provided gifts throughout the year, wrapped and filled the boxes and transported them to the warehouse".
