Cheshire-based PR, social media, and digital agency Source PR has today sent off 21 gift-filled shoeboxes to be delivered to children across the world who otherwise likely wouldn’t receive a gift for Christmas.

The collection consisted of shoeboxes put together by team members, alongside contributions made by residents of the Tattenhall community. Donations from locals ranged from complete filled and wrapped presents to unique hand knitted gifts and toys to fill up the boxes.

Boxes were dropped off at Tilston Parochial Primary School, ready to make their way to children across the world in time for Christmas. The donation was made under the Operation Christmas Child project, an initiative of charity Samaritan’s Purse. Since 1990, more than 186 million children in over 160 countries have been gifted a shoebox present through Operation Christmas Child.

Each included a hand knitted teddy or toy, thanks to a kind donation from The Helpful Knitters.

Louis Hill, Managing Director of Source PR said: “This year we encouraged our team to take part in the Operation Christmas Child shoebox appeal as it’s for a really great cause, and they didn’t disappoint. I’m proud of the generosity by not just those at Source, but also of the wider Tattenhall community too. We feel as though we’ve truly captured the spirit of Christmas this year.”
