Charity thanks businesses for shoeboxes

Have your say

National charity Samaritan’s Purse has extended its thanks to the staff from the Regus centres in St John’s Street and Orton Southgate in Peterborough, for their efforts towards collecting thousands of gift filled shoeboxes which have since been distributed to needy and vulnerable children across the world.

The shoeboxes contained everything from sweets and toys to toothbrushes, colouring books and stickers. They were distributed in time for Christmas to underprivileged children in orphanages, hospitals and refugee camps in some of the world’s poorest countries.

This is the third year that Regus, the flexible workplace provider, has been involved in the shoebox appeal with over 300 UK centres collecting over 15,000 shoeboxes between them.
