Christmas Shoebox — High Street Methodist Church, Witney

This year the shoebox team will be holding several  coffee mornings on Saturdays  5th August, 2, 30 September and 4th November to raise money for top up items and help towards the cost of transport. Covered boxes will be available in the coffee shop for anyone wishing to start their box early this year.

The Teams4U charity was founded in 2006 by Dave Cooke and aims to fulfil the dreams of children whose greatest wish is to receive a Christmas gift.  For many this wish will be granted by the generosity of a total stranger who will probably be completely unaware of the impact it will have and the glimmer of hope it will bring, to a child who has nothing.

Perhaps this year you could be a star and bring a light into the darkness by filling a shoebox.

We welcome all volunteers or anyone who would like to pop in for a chat and we would like to thank all our regular supporters who turn up every year, your help is invaluable and we do enjoy your company.  Also a big thank you to all those wonderful people who pop in with knitted items throughout the year. Our main aim is to put love in a box for as many children as possible and you all help to do just that. Thank you.
