Members of the 5th Newport Pagnell Brownies spent an evening preparing 20 shoeboxes for the Samaritan’s Purse Operation Christmas Child shoebox appeal. 
Assistant Brownie leader, Kimberley Clarke, said: “The girls enjoyed wrapping the shoeboxes they brought in with Christmas paper and filling them with lots of items for children in other countries.

“This taught the girls that Christmas is not just about the presents they receive, but also about giving to those less fortunate than themselves.”
Their shoeboxes will now join all the others donated to the appeal to be delivered as gifts to children in more than 100 countries.
