Shoebox appeal for the elderly

We’ve decided to support the local shoebox appeal for the elderly. Many elderly people are lonely at Christmas time and would welcome a Christmas shoebox gift. Please send the shoeboxes in on Friday 15th December. You could wrap your shoebox in Christmas paper to make a lovely gift for someone.

Here are some ideas of what to put in the box;

  • small boxes of chocolates
  • gloves, hats or scarves
  • crossword books
  • books
  • hot drinks, such as hot chocolate or Horlicks
  • hand creams
  • mints
  • marmalade/jam
  • biscuits
  • slippers/socks
  • tissues/hankerchiefs
  • toiletries
  • shower gels/ bubble bath/deodrant
  • canned items/long lasting foods
  • toothbrush/toothpaste (new)
  • soap and flannel (new)
  • candles and holders
  • foldable brush/comb and mirror
  • wind up torch
  • sensory items (lavendar bag)

Do not include any medicines/medical products or alcohol.

Please donate what you can.
