Animals are the focus of almost everything we do here at BHVS, but sometimes it is nice to do a little for our own species too. This year several members of our staff opted to once more join in with Operation Christmas Child which is run by the Samaritans Purse.
This Charity initiative encourages people to fill a shoe box of goodies to create a wonderful Christmas gift for a child who through disadvantage or poverty, may otherwise not receive one. Each box contains a wealth of items (it is amazing how much you can fit if you pack tightly!) including toys, games, sweets, activities, books and healthcare items such as toothpaste and toothbrushes. The boxes are decorated in bright Christmas paper and are delivered by the Samaritans Purse to children all over the world throughout the coming months.
Our boxes will soon be on their way, but if you would like to read more about Operation Christmas Child or pack a shoe box of your own, you can find all the information you need on the Samaritans Purse website HERE.
We hope our parcels cause as much excitement and joy as these ones have!
