Droitwich church collects 360 Christmas boxes for underprivileged children

Droitwich Editorial 4th Dec, 2014 Updated: 17th Oct, 2016

DROITWICH Methodist Church’s annual Operation Christmas Child appeal has been hailed a resounding success after a new record was set for the number of festive parcels collected.

A total of 360 packages were wrapped and packed and each one contained a toy, sweets, a flannel and soap, toothpaste and a toothbrush, a notebook and pencil case, a hat, a scarf and a pair of gloves.

Following the day’s packing and wrapping where volunteers were kept refreshed with tea, coffee and a cake stall, the boxes will now be sent to Belarus.

There was also books for sale and a bring and buy stall on the day to raise funds to help transport the packages.

The day was co-ordinated by Jean and Dave Shail.

Jean said: “It was another wonderful day with so many people taking part, working hard and enjoying themselves.

“These were dedicated at our morning service on Sunday and have now been taken to the Operation Christmas Church warehouse in Worcester ready to be sent to Belarus.”

Dave added: “We are so grateful for the wonderful support for all those who made and provided gifts throughout the year, wrapped and filled the boxes and transported them to the warehouse.”
