Sunday 6 November was our Shoebox Sunday. We watched a moving video of the journey of a shoebox from the UK to children in Ukraine and Liberia. Operation Christmas Child has been running for 26 years, and now reaches 124 million poor children each year, providing each with a shoebox packed with gifts.
We collected 124 shoeboxes at St Columba’s, with the help of friends and local schools.
Sunday also saw a triple baptism and a parade by our own 4th Tynemouth Beavers, Cubs and Scouts.
