It’s that time of year again….Give and Makeup Shoebox Appeal

As with the last 4 years, we are running a Christmas Shoebox Campaign for the children and young people living in domestic violence shelters across London. They are sadly busier than ever and this year need your support even more than in previous years.

They can have anything – pyjamas, clothing, slippers, books, crayons, colouring books, suitable dvd’s (they will be checked anyway), toys, sweets, chocolate, magazines – pretty much anything that you know a child/young person will appreciate.

As always please ensure the following:

  • gifts are suitable for ages between newborn and 15
  • no toy weapons
  • no borderline ‘sexy’ items of underwear (it has happened in the past)
  • no items of a religious nature
  • new or nearly new please
  • boxes can be packed according to one child/gender or a mixture across all ages




Thank you so much for your continued support. You are changing people’s lives.
