Local business joins shoebox appeal
Tuesday 12th November 2013
WORKPLACE provider Regus in Maidstone is supporting a Christmas campaign which sends shoeboxes full of presents to needy children in developing and war-torn countries.
The Regus centre will be a drop-off point until November 18 for the “Operation Christmas Child” shoebox appeal.
Regus managing director Steve Purdy said: “The appeal is easy, fun to take part in, and brings joy to children who are in real poverty. We’re hoping lots of other local workplaces as well as schools and clubs will fill shoeboxes with small gifts for children who have probably never received a present before.”
Shoeboxes can be dropped off at the Regus centre at Kings Hill, West Malling, on weekdays between 9am and 5pm.
For more information about the scheme and the gifts which can be included, go to www.operationchristmaschild.org.uk.
