Boxes of hope!
SIR - I want to say a big thank-you to everyone that contributed to Operation Christmas Child, run by the Samaritan’s Purse Charity.
This year the collection point at Primley United Reformed Church was able to send 171 shoe boxes, and the Church of the Most Precious Blood (Representative Margaret Perrigo) made a contribution of 63 boxes - a wonderful amount I am sure you will agree.
Other people that I wish to thank are those from other churches, including school children and people who use Primley Hall, and friends and neighbours of Primley URC.
The Service of Dedication and Blessing was held in Primley Church on November 18 and was a very moving occasion.
Rikky Apps, from Uffculme, explained how the Shoe Box Appeal had evolved. The boxes from our collection point this year were transported to the Ukraine. And many disadvantaged impoverished children will now know that love came in a box from good Samaritans in England.
