CHRISTMAS SHOEBOX APPEAL

CHRISTMAS SHOEBOX APPEAL

You will have seen from the note in last month’s PAX that our three churches are once again supporting Link to Hope in sending Christmas shoeboxes to Romania, Moldova, the Ukraine and Bulgaria.  As previously, you can choose to fill a box for either a family or for an elderly person.  To take part you will need an instruction leaflet and an empty shoebox - both of which are available in all three churches.  Then, just follow the step by step instructions on the leaflet.

We do already have a number of items that you may want to put into your shoebox.  These are available for you to help yourself to free of charge, and we will have them at most of the 9.15am. services at St. Ippolyts.  (If you want to

check and/or need more help, then ring Christine and Arthur Sibun on 01462-459145).

You will see from the front of the leaflet that all boxes must be at a collection centre before Tuesday 5th November.  As we will be using a different centre this year, in order to achieve this, all boxes must be wrapped and returned to church (or direct to Christine and Arthur) by Sunday 3rd November at the very latest.  (The end of October would be even better).

One or two people have commented that:  ‘it can’t be shoebox time already can it’?  By way of an answer to that, one local centre received a consignment of 40 finished boxes in July.  Perhaps just a tad early?

Thank you for all of your help.

BIKE RIDE

BIKE RIDE

It’s not too late to take part in the annual Bike Ride in aid of Beds. and Herts. Historic Churches Trust.  The ride takes place on Saturday 14th Septemberso there is plenty of time to get a pack from me which will have a sponsor form and details of the churches in Herts. and Beds. which are open for you to visit.  Then you’ll need to find friends and family - and maybe some church members - who would be happy to sponsor you. Half of the money you raise comes back to our church and half goes to the Trust and is then distributed to churches which are fund raising for repairs or renovations.  You choose your own route from the list of churches and you should find someone at the churches;  some have loos and lots have drinks and biscuits.  You should be able to sign in at any church from 10.00am. to 6.00pm.

I am Shelagh Cox and I can be contacted on 01462-432445, This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it., or for texts 07884-406523.  The mobile phone is rarely answered in time because I never know where it is, but I am quite good at texts!  I will give anyone who wants to ride an information pack, and I have done it myself so I may be able to answer your questions.
