Shoe Box Packing
The ladies at Bethel Church have undertaken to provide 60 gift-filled boxes for the Samaritans Purse Operation Christmas Child Appeal. The boxes, packed with age-appropriate toys, stationery, hats and gloves, can then go to children in developing or war-torn countries, providing Christmas presents for those who otherwise would receive nothing.
We would love you to join us to help in filling these shoeboxes. We will meet at 10am, and have a buffet lunch. If you would like to bring gifts along to go into the boxes, please see the suggestions following. This is a wonderful opportunity for East Hanningfield village to work together for the wider global community.
If you are free do join us on Saturday 26th October, stay for as long as you are able, and lunch will be provided! If you hope to come along give Emma Cockrell a call on 01245 400665 so we have some idea of numbers.
‘Young At Heart’ Seniors Lunch
12.30pm to 2.30pm
Bethel Church warmly invites any one aged 65 or over to join us for a time of good food and early festive celebrations.
In order to make sure that there is plenty of food to go around it would be helpful if you could let us know if you hope to come, and whether you have any dietary requirements.
We can also provide transport if needed.
If you have any questions or would like to book your place at the ‘Young at Heart’ meal, call
Emma Cockrell on 01245 400665, or email
