One of the most well known and best loved of Christmas Charities is the “Shoe Box” charity, otherwise known as Operation Christmas Child. We all know how difficult it is for charities since the pandemic has struck but for those who operate in the very tight “window” of Christmas, it’s even more difficult.
HCR104fm advertised on its Community pages back in October that the national collection week for filled shoe boxes was early in November but we are pleased to announce that this date has been revised and the collection will now take place between 5th -14th December.
The Huntingdon Methodist Church at 17 High Street PE29 3TE will be open as a Church Collection Centre and DROP OFF for filled gift wrapped boxes for the Huntingdon area on the following days:-
Wednesday Dec 9th, Thursday December 10th, Friday 11th –9.30-18.00 & Saturday Dec 12th 9.30- 14.00 hrs
If you would like to know more or have any enquiries, or would like leaflets and/or wrapped empty boxes please contact Sue on 01480412830/07717407917.
If you would rather not fill a box yourself then there is still time to shop and fill a box on line. Go to the Samaritans Purse UK website. This year UK boxes are going to Belarus, Albania, Central Asia, Nigeria and Liberia.
