Christmas in a Shoe bag - Final result

Drum Roll!!!!! - We have collected an amazing total of 80 bags and £300 towards the transport to the Ukraine.

We are absolutely thrilled to have had such a fantastic response to NBC’s first “Christmas in a shoe bag” initiative.

All the bags have been safely delivered to Hope Now’s office in Southampton together with the transport money. Any money over after transport costs will be used to buy a few little extras such as sweets locally in the Ukraine
Team Shoebags
What a wonderful demonstration of God’s love through us all to needy children in the Ukraine and may it plant many seeds of faith amongst them.
We look forward to getting some photos of the children receiving their gifts sometime in the New Year.

We will soon be keeping our eyes open for any cheap end-of-roll Christmas material ready for next year.
