Regus boost for shoebox appeal
Company to provide drop-off points
OFFICE space provider Regus has designated its premises in Hayes and Uxbridge as drop off points for Christmas shoeboxes.
The company has decided to support Operation Christmas Child, the annual campaign in which people in the UK are encouraged to fill a shoebox with gifts for children in developing and war-torn countries.
Boxes can be filled with toys, stationery, small clothing and hygiene items and then be dropped off at the Regus centres at 11 Millington Road and Stockley Park, in Hayes, or Oxford Road, in Uxbridge on Mondays to Fridays, 8.30am to 6pm until November 18. The appeal is operated by international relief charity the Samaritan’s Purse.
Richard Morris, UK chief executive at Regus, said: “We’re delighted to support this very worthy cause, which brightens up Christmas time for disadvantaged children, including those caught up in the Syrian crisis and those living in refugee camps.
“Local businesses, schools and individuals are encouraged to get involved and donate their shoeboxes at any of our centres.”
More than 300 Regus centres in the UK are taking part, including 75 centres in central London providing drop-off points for London commuters.
It is the third successive year the company has supported the campaign.
Regus operates a global network of flexible, modern workspaces including business lounges, meeting rooms and day offices.
