Thanks to the tremendous response from Residents', their families and staff for contributions towards the shoebox appeal, we were able to fill 30 boxes last Thursday 31st October 2013, with a second afternoon scheduled this week (7th November 2013), when we expect to pack at least another 15 boxes! There was a wonderful atmosphere as everyone happily chose the items to pack while wondering which little girl or boy would be receiving their box in time for Christmas.
