Sides duties at church again, this time for a special Sunday service when Ken Wiseman, the Chaplain to the Seafairers Mission in Limassol is to attend. For weeks now we have all been putting together large shoe boxes full of gifts for seamen who are having to work over the holiday period. Ken will collect all these boxes put together by chuches over the island and distribute them at Xmas. He quite effectively made the point that 94% of everything we buy here is brought in by these guys who work 16 hour days for little pay.

Our box contained stuff like shaving cream, razors, toothbrush, toothpaste and foodstuff such as biscuits and chocolate. The mission add wooly hats, a coffee mug and other essential items to complete the boxes. After the service we just came home for lunch as most of our friends had already legged it in the direction of the UK.
