It has been a successful year for those involved with the Samaritan’s Purse Operation Christmas Child shoebox appeal as 155 shoeboxes filled with gifts are now ready to be shipped out.

The appeal is led locally by the churches of Hunstanton and organised each year by the Andrews family in Hunstanton, who fundraised over £300 at a coffee morning in October.

Thanks to fundraising efforts and generous donations from locals, this year’s appeal has far exceeded initial expectations.

Each shoebox is filled with gifts and toiletries and are delivered to children from some of the most impoverished parts of the world – over 24 million boxes have been delivered nationally over the past ten 10 years.
