GORING Free Church is urging people to support this year’s Operation Christmas Child appeal.
Villagers are asked to fill a shoebox with gifts and hand it to the church by November 5.
The boxes will go to the Samaritan’s Purse charity, which distributes them to children in poor countries around the world.
People can donate toys, educational supplies, toiletries, jewellery, sweets, scarves, hats or gloves.
The church is also looking for volunteers to collect, check and dispatch the boxes.Anyone who can help should call Sue Fung on (01491) 873678.
