Just days to go to get your shoeboxes back

THERE are just days to go before we need to package up the shoeboxes you’ve generously filled and send them on their way.

The joint Courier and Rotary campaign has had an amazing response and we cannot thank you enough.

But to make sure the boxes make their way to needy children in central and eastern Europe we need the boxes back at any of our collection points by Friday.

The boxes will then all be packed up and sent to the distribution centre in Preston.

From there, they will go on their way to children across Europe.

Many of those who receive the boxes will not only have never had a present before, but will not have owned anything of their own.

The drop-off points are; The Courier reception, Storah Architects in Todmorden, Jayne Brearley and Co Solicitors in Sowerby Bridge, Tesco at King Cross and Sowerby Bridge, Asda at Thrum Hall, Morrisons at Illingworth, The Pot Stop at Hebden Bridge, Kier Woodward Travel in Elland, The Paper Shop on Stainland Road in West Vale.
