YOUNGSTERS at a Brampton nursery did their bit to help children in less developed countries by filling shoe boxes with special Christmas gifts.
Children from the Ladybird Day Nursery collected 62 shoe boxes filled with toys, clothes and toiletries for the Operation Christmas Child Appeal run by the Samaritan's Purse.
The boxes were loaded into a van and taken to Huntingdon Methodist Church where this Christmas hundreds of boxes will be checked and then distributed to poor countries.
Since 1990, Operation Christmas Child has brought the joy of Christmas to more than 47 million boys and girls. Last year, Samaritan's Purse in the UK sent out more than a million gifts to children across Eastern Europe and Africa. This annual project enables caring individuals, families, schools, churches, businesses, and other organisations to fill ordinary shoe boxes with small toys, school supplies, sweets, and other gifts for children around the world.
