Schools Shoebox Experience

Computers for Charities is opening it’s doors to Primary Schools and Youth groups over  to the weeks ahead to offer a hands on experience of the Christmas Shoebox appeal to young peopleSchools shoebox support.
 
Computers for Charities has been supporting, collecting and distributing the Christmas Shoebox since 1992.
 
The shoebox began as a response to provide encouragement and hope during the Bosnian conflict in 1990 and since has grown into an annual international phenomena.
 
Computers for Charities distributes to local projects assisting disadvantaged children and the elderly and further afield, including old folks homes, hospitals and orphanages in Eastern Europe.
 
Simon Rooksby – says: It is hoped by providing this experience to local children, it will provide a wider understanding of social issues in our communities, whilst also assisting, checking and packing shoe boxes and seeing where needs are, and why!
 
We remain encouraged by the interest from local schools in wanting to support the shoebox experience at the charities workshop in Eastbourne.
 
Computers for Charities welcomes further requests from Schools, Youth groups, etc. Please call: 01323 848588 or email Pippa. admin@computersforcharities.org

Christmas Shoeboxes 2019

Yes Christmas is on the way. And it is great to be getting responses from various schools, workplaces, churches and individuals wanting to support the CfC Christmas shoebox appeal. We have been supporting, collecting and distributing since 1992.

This year support will be divided locally and as in previous years to ongoing projects supporting children and the elderly. Over the last weeks I have met with the organisations concerned.

Novi Pazzar provides amazing support to children with learning difficulties and physical handicap. This year a request for a wheelchair swing has been put forward… and certainly we will see what can be done. As usual Shoeboxes or Gift bags children from Babies to Teens are needed and boxes or gift bags for older Men & Women…

If you can assist please get in touch. Email: simon@computersforcharities.org or call +44 01323 848588.

Computers for Charities workshop is located in Eastbourne. But collections can be provided country wide…. Or further.

As you can see the journey round, was by our newly donated motorcycle and made such a difference. So much so, I carried onto Valencia in Spain to meet potential students for next years Erasmus work placement.

Yes regardless of Brexit we will continue to provide opportunities to youngsters in the EU to continue this fabulous program.

Thanks to you all and please if you have wool to spare Knit & Natter in Hailsham are always in need Double knit and something I cannot remember is welcome.
