The shoebox appeal aims to bring happiness to thousands of disadvantaged children by sending them specially packed and wrapped shoeboxes for Christmas.

The boxes are made up with different contents for boys and girls of different ages and include important essentials, such as hats, socks and basic toiletries, as well as fun items, such as soft toys, books and games.

Each year around 2,000 boxes are made and collected, before being sent to children in Albania, Montenegro, Moldova and the Philippines.
