Brighter Futures launch Shoebox appeal
By Jessica Durston - 6 December 2021
The GWH charity Brighter Futures has launched its Winter Shoebox Appeal to for those staying in hospital over the festive period.
Brighter Futures is asking for members of the public to donate gift items in shoeboxes for the adult patients staying in the hospital over the Christmas period.
The charity has compiled a list of things that can be gifted, including Christmas cards, chocolate and sweets, toiletries, hats, scarves, gloves and more (the full lists of items can be found in the photo gallery above).
A list of items that the charity asks not to be included in the shoeboxes is as follows:
- Sharp items such as scissors and nail clippers
- Food items that requires chilling or cooking
- Tinned foods
- Perishable items
Brighter Futures asks that members of the public do not seal the boxes when they donate them.
Shoeboxes can be dropped off to the Voluntary Services Hub in the Brunel Treatment Centre between 10am - 4pm from 6 - 17 December.
