Operation Christmas Child

Operation Christmas Child and Wilson Field

I love Christmas. The excitement, seeing friends and family, eating lovely food, listening to Christmas songs and of course, giving presents!

Operation Christmas Child is an annual project carried out by Samaritan’s Purse. Each year in the run up to Christmas, Samaritan’s Purse collects presents to send to children who wouldn’t ordinarily receive a gift.

Consequently, the idea is simple: cover a shoe box in brightly coloured paper and fill it with small presents. The shoeboxes will then shipped to children all over the world to open on Christmas Day!

For the past few years I’ve made one shoebox for a girl and one shoebox for a boy. It’s a wonderful feeling to know that Father Christmas will have 2 extra presents to give!

This year, I decided to inspire my colleagues at Wilson Field to join in! For the past few weeks we have been buying, cutting, sticking, papering and creating. The result is a spectacular tower of shiny, sparkly, multi-coloured shoeboxes of different shapes and sizes!

Thanks to the time and effort taken by everyone who joined in, we have managed to collect a fabulous 15 boxes and the lives of 15 children will be brighter this Christmas!

I’d like to say a huge thank you to everyone who took part!
