25 Years of supporting Christmas Shoeboxes
This year we celebrate 25 of supporting, collecting and distributing Christmas Shoeboxes for the elderly and children in the UK and Overseas. Much has changed over these past 25 years from its origin to provide encouragement and hope for those people caught up in the conflict of the Bosnian War and has grown, been adopted by countless organisations to become a worldwide operation.
Enquiries to support this year’s appeal have now been rolling in for the past few weeks, hence this update. In addition due to unforeseen circumstances Computers for Charities will be relocating to Eastbourne in the weeks ahead with normal service being maintained.
Your support therefore, even just sharing what we do to friends, colleagues would as always be most welcome in making this Silver Jubilee a memorable year.
As with previous years, the needs remain the same, standard shoe size boxes (not boots please) or gift bags Children from Babies to Teenagers and the Elderly Male and Female. Indate medicines including items such as dressings, incontinence pads, nappies for children warm clothing children & adults, blankets, etc would be welcome.
Thank you so much
