Hundreds of needy children in Albania have received shoeboxes full of Christmas gifts thanks to the generosity of people in the Burnham-On-Sea area.
Burnham Baptist Church, together with St Andrew’s School and Berrow School, collected over 200 boxes.
These were added to those collected in Baptist churches across the area, making a total of 1,600 shoeboxes.
Pastor Steve Ayers and his daughter Becky were part of a team that flew to Albania over the past week to distribute the gifts in and around the capital, Tirana.
Steve told Burnham-On-Sea.com: “It was great to give out the boxes and be able to assure all the people who donated boxes that their boxes had arrived and were given out.”
