Shoebox Registration

Due to the current situation we are putting up this years Shoebox Leaflet and Poster for you to take ideas from and if you need to download.  NB Please register with us and we will send your leaflets out to you if you are going to do more than 5 shoeboxes. This is very important and is so we can plan our  logistics properly,  Please do not use last years leaflet as it has changed. We would rather send you the original leaflets if at all possible.

To register for this years Family & Elderly Shoebox Appeal 2021 please fill in the form below. Your leaflets and posters will then be sent out to you.

If you would like to know how to Pack a Shoebox then there are lots of ideas here.  Also we have a page of Shoebox Resources and Shoebox Crafting.

This year if you don’t have time or are unable to do a shoebox for us, we will fill a shoebox for you

This year we are offering to fill a shoebox on your behalf.  We have volunteers at Worthing HQ who will choose items, pack a shoebox, wrap it and even put a greetings card in it on your behalf (family name or first names only).

Just fill in the form below, make your donation (circa £20) and write any comments in the box below including what you want written on the greetings card.  As we are making a shoebox especially for you we can even take a photo of it and send it to you if you would like.

DONATE HERE.

  • Donate your £3 per shoebox on behalf of yourself or the financial total of your groups/organisation/businesses shoeboxes eg 10 shoeboxes = £30.
  • OR donate to the 2021 Family & Elderly Shoebox Appeal.

To send a cheque instead then please send it to Link to Hope, Link House, Park Road, Worthing, West Sussex, BN11 2AN. Please mark clearly who has sent it and the number of shoeboxes or the donation you would like to make.

To make a BACS payment our details are: Natwest, 60-24-31, Account No. 12677949. PLEASE PUT A REFERENCE ON YOUR PAYMENT.

We would love to receive bulk purchases of items from our Shoebox Leaflet.   Receiving items in bulk (ie more than one or two) would mean that we could make even more shoeboxes to be sent out to the people we support in Eastern Europe. Please send you bulk items to Link to Hope, Link House, Park Road, Worthing, BN11 2NF.  Alternatively you could order items on line and have them sent directly to us.   We also have an Amazon Wish List that you can use if you are shopping on line with them.
