It’s a gift of hope for chil­dren

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Mp’s Arrest Sparks Outrage -

ASH­FORD Sorop­ti­mists have been help­ing to pack Christ­mas gifts of hope in shoe boxes for an ap­peal or­gan­ised by the lo­cal branch of Sa­mar­i­tan’s Purse. They will be sent to chil­dren from dis­ad­van­taged back­grounds in other coun­tries, and a large quan­tity of knit­ted scarves, hats and gloves were added to some of the boxes. Sorop­ti­mists have pre­pared th­ese gift boxes for many years and for the past two years have helped to check and pre­pare boxes at the ware­house ready to be loaded onto the truck to be sent abroad. They still ur­gently need more gifts that can be left at Unit 4, Chun­nel Es­tate, Vic­to­ria Road, Ash­ford, on Mon­day to Fri­day be­tween 10am and 2pm or 7pm and 9.30pm.
