Create a box of delights
Call for people to send presents to disadvantaged children
BRING a smile to the face of a refugee child and other deprived children around the world at Christmas.
Office space provider Regus is urging people across west London to help spread a little festive cheer by filling a box with gifts such as toys, stationery, hygiene items and clothing, as part of the shoebox appeal.
The company has set up drop-off points at centres in Hounslow, Twickenham, Ealing, Hammersmith, Fulham, Kensington and Hillingdon.
Regus has backed the Operation Christmas Child campaign for a third year, in conjunction with international relief charity 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.”
The 2015 shoebox appeal runs from November 2 to 18 and drop-off points are open from 8.30am to 6pm.
Present-filled shoeboxes will be sent to children living in refugee camps, orphanages and war-torn countries around the world in time for Christmas.
