Donate a gift to less fortunate

PEOPLE eager to support Operation Christmas Child are being reminded that it is not too late to donate a gift-filled shoebox.

While the closing date to send parcels from the Sudbury warehouse on the Chilton Industrial Estate is only a few days away, Samaritan’s Purse, which runs the operation, has also set up an online alternative for anyone who would like to donate.

The children’s charity says this will allow people to send presents to underprivileged children across the world right up until Christmas Day.
