Although it is only November many of us here at Stroud have already been Christmas shopping! That's because we are supporting the Samaritan’s Purse charity with their Operation Christmas Child initiative. Children, staff and parents have carefully packed shoeboxes full of gorgeous gifts and carefully wrapped them up in Christmas paper, not only did this get us feeling festive but also will bring joy and happiness this Christmas to children less fortunate than us all over the world.
