Last month we launched the shoebox appeal and are delighted with the response so far. The map on the left shows the locations of those we know are busily completing boxes for us. Get in touch and mark yourselves on the map!
BT are once again supporting the trip by providing a lorry, which is essential for us. We would particularly like to thank Tony King, Janette Phillips and Matt Hemmings of Openreach for organising and sponsoring the vehicle.
We would like to encourage all those completing boxes to make a donation of £1 per box to help with transport and road toll costs this Christmas (as we take the charities Van as well as a BT lorry). To make a donation please use the MyDonate link below.
If you would like to read about one family to get an insight into those we visit and support click here.
We ask for shoebox gifts mainly for ages 5-18 years as we have found that there are less babies in Moldova currently, family parcels or food parcels.

collection and carol singing
TEECH volunteers, lead by Amy Edgar would like to get together this Christmas to raise money for the shoebox appeal. They are looking for volunteers to help with a collection at one of the tube stations in London (location and date to be confirmed) but are also looking for a choir to join them to sing carols whilst they collect. If you can help support the collection or know of any groups/choirs in London that maybe willing to help then please get in touch.
Our next sorting day at Thorndon, Suffolk is on the 23rd November, followed by the 14th December when we will be sorting out all the shoeboxes. We look forward to seeing some of you there.
We are currently looking for alternative storage for the charity and would like to be located on the Suffolk/Essex border. We would require approx 205 sq m of space. If you can help then please get in touch. Thanks
