Have your say

Office space provider Regus will use its centres in Sheffield as drop off points for the annual Operation Christmas Child shoebox appeal.

The firm, which has centres on Ecclesall Road, Pinfold Street, in the Forsyth Enterprise Centre, Broad Street and Meadowhall will accept boxes from Monday, November 3 to Tuesday, November 18 between 9am and 5pm on weekdays.

The shoebox appeal, run by the Samaritan’s Purse charity, involves filling shoeboxes with toys and gifts to send to children overseas in refugee camps, orphanages, homeless shelters and impoverished neighbourhoods.

Steve Purdy, Managing Director at Regus, said “The Shoebox Appeal is easy, fun, and brings incredible joy to children who are in real poverty.”
