CHRIST Church in Avenue , Malvern, is looking for donations for its Operation Christmas Child shoe box appeal.

The church has already accumulated a good number of boxes, but there is always room for more, say organisers.

The deadline for boxes to be delivered to the church is Saturday, November 25, and they will be blessed at the 11am service the following day, before being sent off to their recipients.

Angie Green of the church said: "We spent last Saturday morning having a lovely time filling the shoe boxes ready to be sent to the children via Operation Christmas Child. It means so much to a child that we remember them in this very practical way."
