Thank you for packing a Shoe Box gift in 2018!

We’ve received the following email from the South East Wales team at Operation Christmas Child

The 2018 Operation Christmas Child campaign in South East Wales has come to an end! All your boxes were sent off in lorries to 3 destinations and, because of you, a total of 16,804 children in need will have received a shoe box gift this Christmas season!

Well done to all of you who took the time and trouble to fill a shoe box or who donated items to top up a box or who gave a donation so that items could be purchased to fill another box or to send a box on its way!  Also many thanks to those who helped in the warehouse, loaded the lorries or were on the vans picking up shoe boxes – it’s been another real team effort and your response has been truly amazing!

The full figures for shoe box gifts passing through our warehouse this year:

  • Liberia 8,212 
  • Romania 5,614
  • Belarus 2,978
  • Total: 16,804

Another big thank you to all at Edwards Coaches who hosted us again this year and particularly to Mike and Kelly Edwards for letting have the warehouse space so generously!
