Fill shoe­box for char­ity

Evening Telegraph (First Edition) - - Court Reports -

PERTH res­i­dents are be­ing urged to help those in need this Christ­mas by sup­port­ing the Blythswood Perth Sup­port Group’s shoe­box ap­peal.

Wrapped boxes will be avail­able from the North Church of­fice between 10am-noon and North Church Open Door Cafe from 2pm-4pm, Mon­day-Fri­day.

Filled shoe­boxes can then be handed back into the church between Sun­day Oc­to­ber 22 and Fri­day Novem­ber 10.

Hun­dreds of thou­sands of shoe­boxes — filled with ev­ery­day items that are lux­u­ries in some im­pov­er­ished coun­tries, such as toi­letries and hair prod­ucts — have been sent around the world by the char­ity since the ap­peal was first launched 24 years ago.
