Shoe box thank you

Operation Christmas Child has thanked the people of Notts for their kindness in donating over 22,100 gift-filled shoe boxes for vulnerable children.

Shoe boxes from across the county will be flown out to countries like Belarus, Liberia and Swaziland and given to children who otherwise wouldn’t have a Christmas.

“We see thoughtfulness from all ages and walks of life and it is very humbling,” said Jane Simmonds, OCC regional manager.
