Family & Elderly Shoebox Appeal
We will be collecting shoeboxes for Link to Hope again this year. These are distributed to poor families and elderly people in Romania, Moldova, Ukraine and Bulgaria. Boxes can be filled suitable for a family or an elderly person. A list of essential items and more information is given in the leaflets which are available from churches in the Bernwode Benefice and Brill Shops.
There will be Shoebox Services during October where you can bring along your filled shoebox. Do check the service page of the Bernwode News for times and dates. The shoeboxes can also be dropped off at Brill Vicarage before the 5th November.
It may not be so easy this year to fill boxes. You can also donate towards the Shoebox Appeal which allows Link to Hope to buy items in bulk on our behalf. Information on this can be found on their website: www.linktohope.co.uk/shoebox-appeal-2021/shoebox-contributions
