Re­gus boost for shoe­box ap­peal

Com­pany to pro­vide drop-off points

Harefield Gazette - - NEWS -

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.
