Louis Taylor Supports Stoke’s 2016 Shoebox Appeal to Take Christmas to Kids in Need

screen-shot-2016-10-17-at-11-44-12Louis Taylor Ltd is thrilled to be an official  supporter of the ever-popular Shoebox Appeal as featured on Signal 1 which helps to bring a much brighter Christmas to kids in need around the world.

Between November 1-18, we invite the community to visit the Louis Taylor office at Albion House, Festival Park in Stoke-on-Trent as a convenient drop off point for the thoughtfully prepared shoeboxes which will be distributed to disadvantaged children in Africa, Eastern Europe and Central Asia.

Associate Director Ian Cotterill said: “This is a much-loved, local appeal and having been aware of the good work undertaken ‘behind the scenes’ for a number of years, we’ve been able to see what a difference the shoebox gifts make to some of the world’s poorest children.

“That inspired our decision to become an official supporter and to help with the logistics of the operation which, as you can imagine, are quite complex.

“Our office is open to the public as a drop-off point to help make the process as easy as possible for the public and, hopefully, encourage more people to get involved and donate.”

It is recommended for each shoebox to include:

  • A toy for a child can love like a doll or a cuddly toy (with CE label), toy truck, skipping rope, yoyo, ball, small puzzle or musical instruments;
  • School supplies such as pens, colouring pencils, sharpener/eraser, crayons, writing pads or notebooks and paper, solar calculators;
  • Hygiene items like toothbrush, flannel, comb or wrapped bar of soap
  • Other items you may like to include are hats, gloves, hair accessories, wind-up torch
