Children pack gift boxes

Have your say

CHILDREN at Christ Church Moreton Hall packed and wrapped almost 100 shoe boxes to send to children in Belarus, who would have had no Christmas presents.

The youngsters filled a total of 96 parcels with toys, sweets, education supplies and hygiene items.

Organisers John and Susan Radcliffe said: “This is by far the biggest collection of shoe boxes ever sent from Christ Church to Operation Christmas Child.”

Following a Service of Carols by Candlelight, at 7pm on December 18 the church in Lawsons Place will join churches from across the UK in an attempt to break the world record for carol singing.

Next Sunday it will hold a Christingle service and on December 24 it will hold two Crib Services.
