New warehouse ready to receive your gift shoeboxes
2:00pm Sunday 3rd November 2013 in News
OPERATION Christmas Child – the Shoebox Appeal – is set to open the doors of its new Evesham warehouse on Monday at Unit 13, St Richards Road, next to Topps Tiles.
“We have had to move at the last minute and have been busy shifting stuff about ready for Monday’s opening,” said Bob James, of Sedgeberrow, the organiser for the three counties of what is billed as the world’s largest gift project for children.
The warehouse will be open to receive the filled shoeboxes from 10am to 4pm and 6.30pm to 9.30pm from Monday to Friday and 10am to 2pm on Saturday.
On Saturday, November 9, a coffee morning will take place at the warehouse where “anyone can drop in for a coffee and see what we do,” said Mr James.
He said ready wrapped empty shoeboxes were available at the warehouse for people to fill.
The Evesham warehouse is the main centre for the three counties – there are subsidiaries across the region – and they were looking to exceed last year’s figure of 80,000 shoeboxes delivered to children in countries where they would otherwise have nothing at Christmas
