Operation Christmas Child Shoebox Appeal
Posted: 5th December, 2016
G.Wathall & Son Ltd have collected more than 1,000 shoebox’s, in our 4 branches, including Christmas gifts, and hygiene and school supplies, which are now being shipped around the world to children in need on behalf of Operation Christmas Child, run by charity Samaritan’s Purse.
It’s been the best response ever from staff, families, schools, churches and local businesses, including Shoe Zone and The Entertainer, who also collected boxes for the annual appeal.
Some of our staff were also involved in checking and sealing the boxes in the warehouse before they leave on their journeys overseas to around 150 countries. We are so honoured to help and what better way could there be to get in to the Christmas spirit knowing the joy that box will give to a needy child.
