Members of a Burnham-On-Sea group have filled scores of shoe boxes with presents to help needy children.

Burnham-On-Sea Moose International Lodge have gathered the boxes and then filled them with gifts this week to support the annual Operation Christmas Child campaign.

Since 1990, Operation Christmas Child – an initiative of the Christian relief and development agency Samaritan’s Purse – has been blessing underprivileged children around the world with gift-filled shoeboxes wrapped and packed by children and adults in the UK.

It’s a campaign that thousands of schools, churches and other organisations from across the UK get involved with between September and November each year.
