Appeal for supplies for Operation Christmas Child

Since 1990, more than 113 million boys and girls, in over 130 countries have experienced God’s love through the power of simple shoebox gifts collected from local churches and schools by the charity Samaritan’s Purse. Last year we were delighted to help this appeal by collecting and packing over 350 shoeboxes.

Technology is having a huge impact on education and children now have access to many web based resources and comprehensive educational apps in the palm of their hand. It is fundamental that we support children in the safe use of digital technologies. It is important that we too are up to speed with the social networking trends and latest websites.
