Boxes being collected from New Life Church in Milnrow
Littleborough-based company Risk Averse Ltd has bought scores of pre-printed shoeboxes for the Samaritans' Purse Christmas Operation Shoebox, which distributes individually curated shoeboxes to children in need.
Following what has been a difficult year for many, the chartered surveying firm wants to make Christmas special for those who may be struggling.
The boxes have been distributed to staff, friends, family and New Life Community Church in Milnrow and Grass Roots nursery in Sowerby Bridge.
The Christmas Shoebox Appeal distributes shoeboxes around the world to children who may not receive anything if not, each containing toys, hygiene products, school supplies, and hats and gloves for children aged between two and 14.
Risk Averse has arranged to pay the £5 donation per box and aims to collect a minimum of 200 boxes. Collections will take place between 9-16 November, and again of the week of 5 December.
So far the firm has collected around 40 filled boxes but has 170 boxes in total to collect for 5 December.
