This initiative sees generous donations from the public of everything from colouring books, hats and gloves to musical instruments. These are then all collected and then dispatched in Christmas decorated shoeboxes, to then be presented to children in both Africa and Eastern Europe.
The shoebox appeal gives hope and happiness to these children, who may not otherwise celebrate the significance of Christmas and the holiday season.
On behalf of both The Church of Ireland and Team Hope; a big thank you to everyone who has kindly donated to this wonderful appeal.
