Celebrating 20 years of caring
This year marks the 20th anniversary of the start of the Shoebox Appeal and once again Rhoda Lawton and her team are gearing up to get as many shoeboxes as possible ready and checked before they are transported across to the continent. Closing date for the boxes is Sunday 3rd November when they will be sorted and checked at Polbeth Church.
Rhoda will be giving details later, but in the meantime, pick up a leaflet from the vestibules, get your shoebox and start collecting the items to go into it.
For those unable to get to the shops, for the Sundays of 8th and 15th September, Eleanor Davidson will have a stall at Polbeth Harwood selling the essentials for a box at very competitive rates. Any profits from these sales go towards the cost of transporting the boxes.
