Operation Christmas Child
Yet again, our children, their families and our staff have sent a large number of shoeboxes as presents as part of Operation Christmas Child, run by Samaritan's Purse.
In 2014, the total collected was 11; so the children were challenged this year to help create at least 12. They did not let us down, and this year managed a huge 19, which for a small school is tremendous.
These boxes will join together with others collected in the Cottesmore Benefice and be sent to the charity. They will then wing their way to children who are not lucky enough to receive presents at Christmas time. These shoeboxes really put a smile on children's faces. It is such a small thing for each of us, but huge for each child who receives a box.
Thank you. And well done.
