Operation Christmas Child

Organisers of Operation Christmas Child in Nantwich are appealing for help to fill shoeboxes of gifts for needy youngsters.

The project, run by Samaritan’s Purse, takes place across the country and returns to Nantwich after success last year.

Volunteers are now calling on churches, schools, workplaces, families and individuals to help contribute and put together the shoeboxes.

“We are incredibly excited to announce that for after the success of last year’s Nantwich Depot, Operation Christmas Child is coming back to Nantwich,” said volunteer Anna Schofield.

The depot is at the Market Street Baptist and United Reformed Church, close to Nantwich Civic Hall.

You can help by filling a shoebox with small gifts, or by donating ‘filler’ items for part- filled boxes like pens, pencils, new soft toys or hats and scarves.

Volunteers are also wanted to help at the local depot checking and preparing boxes between November 25-29.

It will be open  10am to 1pm, 2pm- 5.30pm and 6.30pm-8.30pm, closed between midday and 2pm on Monday and Friday.

“Any time you can spare will help make a huge difference,” Anna added.
