In November our Operation Christmas Child Campaign begins. This is the time when collections are made from public drop-off points, schools, churches and other organisations that have been active in putting together their shoeboxes. They are brought to our satellite warehouse at the United Reformed Church in Maidenhead. All the boxes are then checked and put into cartons ready for shipping to their destination countries.
This month's Craft Group meeting saw us finishing off some bits and pieces in preparation for the busy weeks ahead.
Making rolls of paper and sharpening pencils!
Wrapping shoeboxes in Christmas paper.
Filling purses and bags with little girlie gifts.
Some last minute knitting
Decorating tennis balls tubes which will be filled with paper and pencils.
