Shoebox Appeal


Haxby & Wigginton Church acts as a focal point for the shoebox appeal.

The Christmas ‘Shoe Box Appeal’ is returning and we are looking forward to a new partnership with The Rotary Club. We are excited about their scheme as it allows us to give gifts to a wider range of recipients. You can choose to fill the following types of box:
Baby Box : Children’s Box : Teenager’s Box : Household Box
The contents must be packed in one of the Rotary Club’s boxes which do not need to be gift wrapped. Free empty boxes, along with a list of suitable items, can be obtained and returned at the Aroma Coffee Shop, 30 The Village Haxby  The final collection date will be Saturday 12th November 2016 . We know your gifts will be much appreciated by adults and children living in great poverty in Eastern Europe.

Leaflets explaining exactly what to do and what you can and cannot include are available in  the churches around Haxby and Wigginton and also from Aroma. Remember to attach the £2 for transport to the outside of the box – thank you!
