Diana with Christina from Corporate Communications, who helped collect the boxes from the Foundation Building
Staff and students have once again helped make Operation Christmas Child a success at the University of Liverpool.
In total, 71 boxes were collected, most of which will be delivered to children in Liberia, Africa. For those who paid online and received a barcode, the boxes will be delivered to different locations, which you should be able to track.
This year the English Society participated by contacting retailers in the city for shoe boxes, purchasing items to fill extra boxes and being on-hand to wrap any boxes that had been dropped off.
Diana Powell from Faith Express said: “It was a real collaborative effort, with staff and students across departments participating by giving what they could. One staff member’s mother knitted handmade teddies, hats and gloves. The motto this year for Operation Christmas Child was ‘From one community to another’, it could not have been more accurate.”
