SHOEBOXES ON THEIR JOURNEY

On Monday our shoeboxes were taken down to the Samaritan's Purse checking and distribution centre on Chatsworth Road.  We were delighted that between Alfreton, Chesterfield and the collection at Alison's school at Hasland we were able to drop off 87 boxes. 

Once the boxes have been checked and sealed they will be off to a desination in Eastern Europe. Picture those 87 smiles as children open the boxes you prepared.

The ladies at the distribution centre were a little swamped having just received 2,000 shoeboxes collected by Shoezone and were checking and sealing up boxes with gusto! It's wonderful that people in our area have been so generous.
