Charity breakfast supports Operation Christmas Child

Story posted on

OWNERS of the White Hart in Atworth say they are overwhelmed after their charity breakfast collected 63 wrapped shoeboxes in support of the Operation Christmas Child appeal. 

The charity breakfast invited people to come along and donate items to be used in shoeboxes to send to disadvantaged children abroad over Christmas. Visitors even stayed to help assemble and wrap the boxes ready to be sent. 

The breakfasts served, 67 in total, also raised £74 to go towards the postage for the boxes. 

Kirsty Cortilla, owner of The White Hart said, “I am feeling quite overwhelmed with the volume of donations given today at our Charity Breakfast Club and the amount of time people gave collecting, buying and making bits and bobs for the Operation Christmas Child boxes and of course wrapping shoebox after shoe box.

“All morning I watched people come in until our table was over flowing and bags and boxes was mounting on the floor. I’m sorry if I didn’t get to personally thank you each time, but thank you so much.

“Last month when the charity was announced we wanted to target 50 boxes, and last week we were thinking 20 boxes would be great – but 63 boxes wrapped and all full to the brim is amazing!”
