AMEN Shoeboxes 2020

AMEN Shoeboxes and blankets

It will soon be time to send out AMEN shoeboxes and any knitted blankets off. Thank you to all who have already begun to gather their boxes together - and if you haven’t yet done so, there is still time.

A video showing previous years’ boxes being received is available to view and you can download the shoebox leaflet from AMEN’s website - www.amentrust.co.uk (click on ‘Shoebox Appeal 2020 now open!’) There are leaflets left in the church for anyone who would prefer to use this and not the downloadable version. Please use standard sized shoeboxes.

This year we are not able to receive boxes for collection in the church, as we would normally do. Instead this year there are two collection slots which will take place in the church carpark from 4.15-5pm on Sunday 18th and Sunday 25th October.
