Operation Christmas Child

Operation Christmas Child

It’s shoebox time and this year it’s more important than ever!Once again Ainon is supporting Operation Christmas Child by sending filled shoeboxes to children in need throughout the world.If you would like to help us, empty shoeboxes and idea sheets on what to pack in the boxes can be picked up from the cabin at Ainon church between 4pm-6pm every Wednesday.If you are unable to collect at that time please email hello@ainon.co.uk for alternative arrangements. Wrapped shoeboxes can also be used but please don’t seal them.You can drop off your shoeboxes at Ainon between 9th and 16th November, times to be confirmed.If you don’t feel able to fill a whole box then we will also happily accept loose items which will be used to make up extra shoeboxes with all the spare items donated.Thank you so much for all your support. 😊 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E5VVDymhGr4&feature=youtu.be

      Hi Susan
      Thank you for your message. We would be delighted to receive your shoeboxes next week and I can arrange to meet you either Thursday or Friday morning. If you can email me gina@ainon.co.uk and we can arrange a date.
      Many thanks

  2. Well, what a fantastic year even when Covid-19 is disrupting us. With the support of the local community and our friends at Bethel Baptist Church in Treharris, we have collected 106 shoeboxes.

    That’s 106 children that will be smiling on Christmas day as they enjoy opening the gifts that have been donated through a little chapel in a small corner of Cardiff. More importantly that’s 106 children who will have the opportunity to hear the great news of Salvation.

    The shoebox campaign is a fantastic operation that is run by Samaritans Purse, but they are like a puppy (not just for Christmas). You can check out more about them here https://www.samaritans-purse.org.uk/.
