Story

It's that time of year when we should be thinking about our shoebox appeal for Albania which we do with our fellow Baptist Churches in the West of England, but sadly due to COVID-19 this can't happen this year.

This will be a huge disappointment for the 3,000 children who received a box last Christmas. If we can't send them this year these children will not receive any presents. So we've come up with a plan to get us all involved this year. As you know, we're linked with Good News Baptist Church in Lezhë, Albania, and as a church we are going to walk to Albania together. So here's how it works:

It's approximately 1,629 miles from Weston to Lezhë and at the moment lots of us are exercising of some sort, maybe a walk a day or jogging, or walking to school. Some of you might not be able to get outside but you are walking up and down the stairs each day or to and from the kitchen. You can login your miles each time you walk by emailing us (office@milton-baptist.org.uk) or messaging the Facebook group. Once we have logged all the miles together that everyone has done, we will see if we can reach the goal of walking 1,629 miles together.

That money will go towards the WEBox Christmas appeal run by Webnet so that they can make up Christmas boxes over in Albania. This means the children won't miss out on receiving their Christmas boxes this year.

This is not just for us to do - feel free to get your friends, neighbours, and colleagues to join in with the walking or donating. Please do share this Just Giving page to get the word out. You can find out more about our challenge by looking on our church website and Facebook page.

Thank you and lets make this a really special Christmas for the children of Albania.
