For the last few years we have been collecting shoeboxes for Jubilee Outreach Yorkshire to be forwarded to the elderly in Romania in time for Christmas. Boxes are collected and blessed at our morning service at the beginning of November.
We are delighted that in 2016 we were able to send 25 shoe boxes, 2 boxes of knitted cardigans and hats and £215 in donation to JOY for onward transportation to Romania.
In 2017 the boxes were blessed at our morning service on Sunday 5 November 2017. 30 boxes and donations totalling £255 were delivered to Jubilee Outreach Yorkshire. A similar number were sent in 2018. In 2019 we were delighted that we were able to take 33 boxes and £58.50 in donations to Julibee Outreach Yorkshire.
Since 2020 we have sent monetary donations instead of the shoe boxes which is easier for JOY to process and ensure the help gets to where it is needed.
