Are you an ‘I’ve already done my Christmas shopping’ person or a last minute ‘It’s more Christmassy shopping on Christms Eve’ person? Whatever your personal preference there are some things that we just have to fit in early – and with a deadline.

The deadline for getting  Christmas shoeboxes to the Community Centre is November 9th…

This year we are pleased to be partnering with the charity Link to Hope. They work all year round in Romania, Moldova, Ukraine and Bulgaria. They ask that we create family or elderly shoe boxes, impacting a wider group in their communities this Christmas – they ask for candles, wind up torches, plasters as well as things that you might normally expect.

By following the link you will see what to include – you then wrap the entire box and add a list of contents on the outside.

  • No time to make up a whole box? Please donate towards the cost of transport (£2 per box) or bring items for the Community Centre to use to make up boxes.
  • Handmade knitted toys are very welcome but are not to be put inside the Shoeboxes – please drop  them off at the Restore Centre.
  • For further information please speak to Judy Lovell or Matt Chow – email centre@restorecc.org.uk or call 02085087247

We have challenged ourselves to send 80 boxes – help us to meet that target – we will let you know the outcome.
