We're happy to announce that UK Christmas World is now an official drop off point for the annual Shoebox Appeal. If you're local to the Barnsley area then we're one of 2 collection points which have been allocated in this area the other being in Barnsley centre.
So, what is the 'Shoebox Appeal" ?
The shoe box appeal is a public charity donation where by you find an empty shoe box and fill it with toys, toiletries, school supplies, hats, scarfs, gloves etc. These boxes are then dropped off at your local drop off point and then they are shipped across the world to children who need them most. It's an amazing cause and every box sent will make a massive difference in someones life this Christmas.
If you're looking for more information, please read How to pack a box on the offical Samaritan's website.
Drop off points for the 2015 Operation Christmas Child Campaign will be open between the 1st and the 18th of November.
You can find your local drop off point by visiting the official Samaritan's website and entering your post code here.
