APOSTLESHIP OF THE SEA - SHOE BOXES FOR SEAFARERS AT CHRISTMAS

Christmas 2016 - Collection of shoe boxes for seafarers

Shoeboxes collected by members of the Cathedral are taken by the Apostleship of the Sea to give to seafarers. These shoeboxes contain presents for those who are away from their families at Christmas. Items included are: Chocolate, Sweets, Woolly Hat, Gloves, Toiletries, Stationery and a personal message of support (It is very lonely for them being away from home over Christmas).
