Specsavers Nenagh shows support for Shoebox Appeal

Specsavers Nenagh is once again showing its support for the annual Shoebox Appeal 2016, an initiative launched by Irish charity Team Hope. Specsavers is encouraging the people of Tipperary to get involved and create gift-filled shoeboxes of Christmas presents for children all over Eastern Europe, the former Soviet Union and Africa.

Irish Christmas shoebox gift

Specsavers Nenagh has been involved with the campaign for the last eight years, acting as a drop off location for the gifts. Over the last 18 years, Team Hope has sent an Irish Christmas shoebox gift to more than 3 million children in 21 countries. Due to the increasing number of requests from countries all over the world, this year’s aim is to gather even more Christmas shoeboxes than in previous years. All you need to get involved is an average sized shoe box and a bit of imagination.

Support

Specsavers Nenagh Store Director Orlagh Moynihan said, ‘Specsavers Nenagh is proud to support such a fantastic cause. A shoebox full of gifts will not only make a child feel very excited and happy this Christmas, but also feel valued and special. We would like to encourage anyone who wants to get involved to make up a shoe box and drop it in to us here at Specsavers Nenagh. Help us to give these children a Christmas they will never forget.’

Information leaflet

All the information you need about how to pack the shoe box, suggestions of suitable items, a sticker to mark the box (boy or girl, age) and an envelope for the €4 (contribution towards transport etc.) is in the leaflet which is available from Specsavers Nenagh located at 5 Quintin's Way, Pearse Street.

Christmas filled shoebox

Please show your support and drop off a Christmas filled shoe box to Specsavers Nenagh before 11th November 2016 - all gifts need to be sent to Santa in time for Christmas delivery! Best known for its Christmas Shoebox Appeal, Team Hope is an Irish, Christian development aid charity, working with children, and through them, into their families and communities mainly across Eastern Europe, former Soviet Union and Africa.
