Operation Christmas Child 1

St Thomas More RC College sets new Operation Christmas Child Record!

All the students at St Thomas More RC College showed their generosity and community spirit by supporting The Samaritan’s Purse Shoe Box Appeal this term.  Operation Christmas Child is a charity that aims to ensure that children all over the world receive a small Christmas gift that can have a huge impact on a young person’s life. The charity follows the example of Christ by helping those in need and by giving people hope at Christmas.

This year, the college showcased its benevolent spirit by breaking its own ‘shoebox appeal’ record. The students collected 214 Operation Christmas Child shoeboxes and raised £360.68, which is an outstanding achievement. Well done!

The Head Girl, Sharon Adesiyan and the Head Boy, Joe Plumbley, present The Samaritan’s Purse with a £360.68 cheque and 214 shoeboxes.

Members of the GIFT Chaplaincy team help to prepare the shoeboxes for Operation Christmas Child.
