Operation Christmas Child
Coffee Morning Success
A coffee morning held at Marion Roberts Court, Hethersett, raised £439.35 for the Christmas Child appeal.
The money came from coffee and cakes, the sale of toys and donations and will be put towards filling shoe boxes to send to needy children in Serbia at Christmas.
Leaflets explaining about the charity have been published and will be available in various shops throughout South Norfolk in the coming weeks. Recently project co-ordinator Shirley Adams and Wymondham co-ordinator Ann Scott took part in a special service at Wymondham United Reformed Church to help raise awareness of the charity.
“I would like to thank everyone who has given us so much support and given donations and gifts,” Shirley said adding that she will be collecting boxes at her home in Hethersett from the end of September.
Apart from filled boxes the charity is also in need of chocolate, sweets and toothpaste to send to the youngsters. For more information on Operation Christmas Child, Shirley can be contacted on Norwich 810323.
