Gifts that don't cost the Earth

Estates and Facilities worked as a team to support Operation Christmas Child’s shoebox appeal. The team gathered second hand items to give to some of the poorest children on earth, through Samaritan’s Purse. Together we filled 17 shoeboxes with exactly 400 items ranging from stationery, Christmas cracker prizes, reusable water bottles, badges, hair clips, costume jewellery and cuddly toys. We got our creative hats on and reused what we didn’t need, to help those who need our help the most. We put together some exciting shoeboxes filled with presents that may have been thrown away. This way, we made 17 children happy and closed the loop, by diverting waste from landfill.
