Santa’s Helpers Assemble!
With just over a month to go until Christmas the season of goodwill is in full swing, for Midshire at least! We’re showing our festive spirit by supporting the Friends of North Solihull’s Christmas shoebox appeal for a second year running.
Led by Midshire customer Coleshill Heath School, the appeal gifts a shoebox full of goodies to the elderly, many of whom don’t have anyone to celebrate the festive season with.
Last year Midshire donated over 80 boxes to the appeal, so don’t be a Scrooge, join us in getting involved!
What can you do to help?
We’re asking you to decorate and wrap a box filled with festive gifts and a Christmas card, and get it down to the Onward Club in Chelmsley Wood. Alternatively you can drop them at Midshire’s West Bromwich office and we’ll deliver them to the club for the December 5th deadline!
It really doesn’t have to break the bank – we’ve taken the liberty of listing some things you can give below:
From smellies to soaps, toiletries are always needed. If you were to receive a box, what would you like? Think shampoos, conditioners, wipes, creams, hair brushes, deodorant.
It’s not a present if you only give people what they need, boring. Give them something they’d want. A scented candle, a bottle opener, a lovely mug, or, no pun intended, think outside the box! (Nothing profane, insane, or dangerous, please).
Yum! Yum! Yum! Who doesn’t like something indulgent at Christmas? Chuck in chocolate, sweets, or something savoury – but bear in mind the expiry date, fresh cream cakes are delicious, but not when they’re covered in mould…
For more information, give Joanne Palmer, Group Customer Service Manager at Midshire a call on 0121 359 5559.
Christmas is not always an easy time for everyone, giving a small gift could be the tiny act of kindness needed to brighten someone’s day.
