This year we’ve received 5,295 Christmas Shoeboxes, smashing last year’s record of 3,882. These Christmas Shoeboxes full of gifts will go to men, women and children living in poverty in Bulgaria. This year we are planning to visit more orphanages and Roma communities, so the extra boxes have arrived just in time.
Your Christmas Shoeboxes filled with gifts ranging from toothbrushes to teddies left the UK today (Monday 6th December) and will be met by a Trussell Trust team in Bulgaria on December 9th. Bulgaria Operations Manager Rich Parsons says: ‘We are blown away by the generosity of those who gave Christmas Boxes this year. All at the Trust would like to say a huge thank you – your boxes really will make a huge difference this Christmas.’ To follow the team’s progress check out their blog.
