This year the pupils and staff of The Whitehaven Academy have collected filled shoeboxes for Operation Christmas Child.  Over the years we have collected over 1300 boxes for less fortunate children all over the world.  This year special thanks go to Thomas Kerr and to Ms. Cartwright’s form.

Pictured collecting the 43 boxes donated this year is George Sermon from Samaritan’s Purse UK. 

Samaritan’s Purse UK is an international relief and development organisation that works through local churches to proclaim and demonstrate the love of God amongst communities in need in countries across Sub-Saharan Africa, Eastern Europe and Central Asia.
