Unfortunately, because of COVID 19 restrictions, there will be no weekend ‘shoebox extravaganza!’ at Emmanuel this year, nor will we be collecting items for shoeboxes as we have done in previous years.
This is a great disappointment to so many of us. However, there is still an opportunity for you to pack a shoebox online. The cost is £20 including postage. More details can be found here https://shoeboxonline.samaritans-purse.org.uk/
Just pleased it’s still happening, one way or another … very straightforward to do!
We’re not sure if there will be a warehouse in Essex this year to receive delivery of items, such as knitted woollens etc. I’ll let you know when I know!
