Shoeboxes for Belarus

Each year, St John’s with St Mark’s beaver’s, cubs and scouts, load shoe boxes into a van to start their journey to the children of Belarus. 

The shoe boxes are filled with items donated by members of the St John’s with St Mark’s congregation, and some of the congregation fill boxes themselves. The Knit and Natter group are always extremely busy making hats and gloves for the boxes. We would like to say a big thank you to anyone who contributes to the boxes.

In 2016 we made up 168 boxes - and are already collecting for Christmas 2017! See Kelly Watson if you want to know what would be most useful.
