Shoe box update from Sherburn in Elmet warehouse

12,253 shoeboxes were handled at the warehouse in Sherburn in Elmet where Haxby & Wigginton Church send their shoeboxes. A total of 10,103 went to Kosova and the remaining 2,150 went to Belarus.  Why not start collecting items ready for this year – keep an eye out for deals on toys, soap, notebooks and pencils and of course the all important empty shoe box.
