Gift Box Appeal
Wednesday, 26 October 2022 - 10 minutes
The annual Gift Box Appeal is now in full swing. The operation has been running for nearly 30 years and sends boxes of 'goodies' to underprivileged children in Eastern Europe - including Belarus, Ukraine, Moldova and Bulgaria.
You don't need to donate anything expensive - but many things we take for granted will be loved by the children.
Useful items for school, such as exercise books, pens, pencils, erasers etc. A few toiletries - soap, shampoo - toothbrush and toothpaste. A small toy (not battery operated, could be secondhand - but in good condition. Some hand down winter clothes, scarves, gloves etc (socks, if included, must be new - but will be very welcome).
Mark Butcher spoke to the main organiser of the campaign in the Geneva region - Tyrrian Livesley.
