We had a fantastic response to our shoebox appeal.
A HUGE Thank You to all the individuals, schools, the children and all the organisations who have worked so hard and given so generously to make this years appeal an oustanding success.
Our Shoeboxes and Hampers have been getting delivered throughout the borough.
We gave ‘Your Voice Counts‘ 50 hampers to distribute at their South Tyneside Christmas Party, while our staff, volunteeers and EE workers ensured all hampers and shoeboxes were delvered on time.
‘Tis a pity that all of you who have made such great contributions cannot witness the sheer pleasure that your gifts bring to the deserving recipients.
THANK YOU you all for Helping to make someone feel less lonely this Christmas.
Our staff, volunteers and the odd Elf readied the shoeboxes, sorted and packed the hampers for delivery ready for delivery around the borough.
Below are just a few of the people and organisations we need to thank.
Our Friends from Autismable have done a fantastic job with their shoeboxes together with the pictures to show how it’s done :-).
We’ll keep updating this page with more photos and commentary on the last leg of the appeal. In the meantime here is a photo from a shoebox delivery in 2021.
err … is it just me but I think a giant masked snowman wearing trainers is a tad surreal 🙂
