Shoebox City Christmas Appeal 

30th September 2015

Christmas is fast approaching and we are once again running our Shoe Box City Christmas Appeal. Christmas can be a difficult time of year for lots of people, but especially within the group that we are working with. We work with young people aged 16-25 to alleviate the hardship and distress caused by homelessness, housing, financial and other difficulties.

This is now our eighth year of Shoebox City and the gift they receive through us may be the only gift they get this Christmas. We also include their children in the giving of gifts. All the gifts are donated by local people, church groups, educational establishments and local business.

We are asking if you could help please by donating a box of gifts or a gift for Shoe Box City 2015. If so the gifts need to be delivered to the office by Tuesday, December 8th (address details below). If you would like to donate a complete box of gifts then the box needs to be wrapped but left open please and clearly marked male / female / child etc. An example of gifts that can be put in boxes is below:
Socks, sweets / chocolate, hats, gloves, make up, jewellery, body lotion, men and women’s toiletries, novelty mugs, shaving/ nail kits, anything else that you feel is suitable. Then for children, items suitable for male and female from birth to 5 years approx, soft toys, books, bubble bath, shampoo, sweets, clothes etc.
