Adding WOW with the Shoebox Appeal

We are proud to announce that all our branches are participating in the Samaritans Shoebox Appeal. It is a small thing for each one of our team to do, but we recognise that it can make a huge difference to a child’s life. Each shoebox needs to be packaged for a specific age group; the groups are: 2-4 years, 5-9 years and 10-14 years.

The box should contain a variety of items, including toys, school supplies, personal hygiene items and other bits and bobs, including hats, scarves and gloves. Also in the box they have to place a “WOW” item; this could be a toy, or something that the child will immediately fall in love with as soon as they open the box

It is a great appeal and our teams have been enjoying sharing their creative collections in each box, each packed with care and attention, and with a specific gender and age in mind.
