Operation Christmas Child 2012 – Thank you

Joanna Davies, local organiser for Operation Christmas Child, writes to thank local people for their support of this year’s effort.

Despite everyone struggling with increased fuel and food bills the people of Hodnet and the surrounding areas have donated a magnificent number of filled shoeboxes in support of this annual event. 91 shoeboxes were collected and taken to the Telford depot and will make their way to children in war-torn Kosovo – a region in southeastern Europe. The total was greater than last year and I would like to thank everyone who took part. It has certainly demonstrated the true meaning of Christmas.
