Shoebox Appeal

    Radio Plymouth are delighted to support Operation Christmas Child Shoebox Appeal.

    Children all across the world won't get a gift this Christmas but you can help change that. By simply filling a shoe box with gifts you can make a real difference in the life of a child in need. 

    How to pack your shoe box:

    1. Wrap an empty shoe box and lid separately. 

    2. Decide if your gift is for a Boy or a Girl and their age category (2-4 years, 5-9 years or 10-14 years)

    3. Fill your box with Toys - include items that children will immediately embrace such as dolls, toy trucks, stuffed animals (with CE label), harmonicas, yo-yos, skipping ropes, balls, small puzzles etc 

    School Supplies -  Pens, pencils and sharpeners, crayons or felt pens, stamps and ink pad sets, writing pads or notebooks and paper, solar calculators, colouring and picture books etc.

    Hygiene Items - Toothbrush and toothpaste, bar of wrapped soap, comb or hairbrush, flannel.

    Other Items - Hat, cap, gloves or scarf, sunglasses, hair accessories, jewellery set, wind up torch, wrapped sweets. You can also include a note or greeting cad to the child and photo of yourself or your family.
