Christmas Shoebox Appeal


A BIG "Thank You" to everyone who took part in this year's Christmas Shoebox Appeal.  Across our four villages, Mears Ashby CEVA Primary School, the WI and Higham Ferrers Church, we collected 90 shoeboxes filled with delightful gifts for children overseas.  We also received £130 towards the cost of transporting your beautifully wrapped parcels to their destinations and arranging Christmas parties for the children.  Thank you! 

Do take a moment on Christmas Day when you're opening your presents to think of the child opening your gift box.  And... look out for the 2020 Christmas Shoebox Appeal.  We'll be back as it is such a wonderful cause.

Every blessing,

Maureen Coles and Revd Katrina

Just some of your 90 boxes...
