Can you help with the Ableworld Elderly Shoebox Appeal this Christmas?

This entry was posted in General November 15, 2018

This year Ableworld will be teaming up with both the Royal Shrewsbury Hospital and the Princess Royal Hospital, Telford, 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.

Ableworld have been involved in a similar initiative for the last 2 years and have collected well over 100 shoeboxes each time, so we are aiming to see if we can make it even bigger and better this year.

How can you help?

We are appealing to the public this Christmas to fill a 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,  puzzle books or handmade gifts -  the list is endless, but please no alcohol.

These can then be taken to our Ableworld stores in; Birkenhead, Burton, Chester, Congleton, Crewe, Hanley, Llandudno, Nantwich, Newport, Northwich, Oswestry, Reading, Rhyl, Shrewsbury, Stockport, Wrexham and the Ableworld Head Office in Nantwich before 17th December.

We will then ensure that all donations will be delivered directly to both hospitals before the big day.
