Shoe box success

Norma and shoe boxes

Kind-hearted members from St Catherine’s and Blackwell & Burcot WIs donated 42 shoe boxes packed with Christmas gifts in support of Operation Christmas Child, Samaritan’s Purse.

More shoe boxes were donated by local people, including Youth Blackwell and Mary’s Hairdressers in Barnt Green.

For some of the world’s most disadvantaged children, these shoe boxes would be the first Christmas present they have ever received in their lives.
The boxes were delivered to Bromsgrove Baptist Church for shipment to Kazakhstan.

The picture shows Norma Bojarowski at home with the pile of gift wrapped shoe boxes ready for despatch.
