Can you help with the Ableworld Elderly Shoe Box Appeal this Christmas?

This entry was posted in General November 28, 2017

This year Ableworld will be teaming up with the Royal Stoke & County Hospital to help make Christmas Day in hospital a special day.  Nearly 1,000 elderly people will be in a bed at the hospital on Christmas Day, many without close family members who are able to visit them, so a small present to open can make a huge difference to them.Elderly Shoe Box Appeal

Shoe Box IdeasHow can you help?

We are appealing to the public this Christmas to fill a wrapped shoe box with small things which we may all take for granted, but that an elderly person would appreciate. Ideas include puzzle books, hot chocolate, biscuits, warm socks, gloves, slippers, scarfs, hats, tins of soup, toiletries, confectionary, pens or handmade gifts -  the list is endless, but please no alcohol. If you could also ensure the box isnt sealed, as a nurse may need to check a gift is appropriate for each patient.

These can then be taken to our Ableworld stores in Crewe, Nantwich, Northwich, Congleton, Hanley, Burton, Stockport, Shrewsbury, Newport, Wrexham, Rhyl and Llandudno and the Ableworld Head Office in Nantwich before 18th December.

Ableworld will ensure all donations will be delivered directly to the Royal Stoke & County Hospital before the big day.
