Operation Christmas Child 2016

23rd December 2016

Shoebox Appeal – the power of a simple gift.

Once again, our children have demonstrated their thoughtfulness for the needs of others through their generous donations for the Operation Christmas Child Shoebox Appeal. A total of 60 boxes have been collected by a member of Samaritan’s Purse. He commented on the generosity of Longmoor pupils, telling us that: “Every gift-filled shoebox donated equals a smile on the face of a child at Christmas.”

The boxes will be distributed to children in hospitals, orphanages, refugee camps, homeless shelters and impoverished neighbourhoods all around the world, regardless of nationality, political background or religious beliefs.

Thank you to everyone who contributed in any way.
