Dear Reader

Some­one, some­where must be able to help ... An SOS ap­peal has gone out by a char­ity for premises in Scar­bor­ough that it can use as a pro­cess­ing and pack­ing cen­tre for shoe­boxes that go out to the needy (see page 10). Op­er­a­tion Christ­mas Child has been col­lect­ing goods, and pack­ing and send­ing out the boxes for years. But now, de­spite ap­peals, it has drawn a blank in its search for premises.

The char­ity needs empty premises of 8,000 to 10,000 square feet, on one floor, that could be used as a char­i­ta­ble let for six weeks.

There seems to be plenty of empty build­ings around town that would be suit­able. Are you a busi­ness owner, or com­mer­cial prop­erty owner, that might have a space that fits the bill ?

If so, you’d be do­ing a huge ser­vice to the char­ity as it tries to bring some Christ­mas cheer into the lives of those across the world who have lit­tle. So, if you can, be a Santa, not a Scrooge.
