S Norfolk interest for Operation Christmas Child

Since 1990 more than 100 million children in more than 130 countries across the world have received a Christmas shoebox through the Samaritan’s Purse organisation, it is the UK’s largest children’s Christmas appeal and Wymondham Methodist church is starting this year’s campaign in September

Wymondham Methodist church are looking for people who are interested in volunteering to support this appeal, and are welcoming new people to the campaign as well as those who may have volunteered before, and have an evening on Thursday September 10 where they will be explaining the exciting opportunities available.
The evening starts at 7pm and finishes at 9pm and refreshments will be available.
