JUBILEE OUTREACH YORKSHIRE : SHOE BOX SUNDAY

For the last few  years we have been collecting shoeboxes to be forwarded to the elderly in Romania in time for Christmas.  Boxes are collected and blessed at our morning service at the beginning of November.

​We are delighted that in 2016 we were able to send 25 shoe boxes, 2 boxes of knitted cardigans and hats and £215 in donation to JOY for onward transportation to Romania.

In 2017 the boxes were blessed at our morning service on Sunday 5 November 2017.  30 boxes and donations totalling £255 were delivered to Jubilee Outreach Yorkshire.  A similar number were sent in 2018.

Shoebox Sunday this year was on Sunday 27 October 2019.  We are delighted that we were able to take 33 boxes and £58.50 in donations to Julibee Outreach Yorkshire.

Dear Friends,

Thank you for the 33 very beautiful Christmas food parcels, plus the kind donation of £ 58 towards transport. The boxes are packed up on pallets awaiting the lorry, which should arrive any minute to take them to Romania. They will arrive next week in good time for our lovely colleagues to take them to the housebound patients for whom they care. I can tell you that they are eagerly awaited and so very welcome. Thank you all for helping to make Christmas very special to some lonely, very poor people, who are mostly very elderly, often disabled and forgotten, except by our lovely nursing friends.

God bless you this Christmas

Kathy  (JOY)
