We’re appealing for festive shoeboxes for the elderly

We are once again asking the generous people of Wales to get behind our festive shoebox appeal for the elderly. It has been extremely successful in the past, so we have decided to continue it again this year.

Abacare - shoebox appeal

We’re asking you to fill a shoebox with essentials and other bits and pieces that you think would really help brighten someone’s day. We would suggest hats, scarves, slippers, toiletries, books and something a bit more festive and fun for Christmas.

All of the boxes donated will be evenly distributed among our elderly service users and we’re sure it will really help brighten their day.

Any shoeboxes can be dropped off or sent to our offices in Newtown, Bangor, Ebbw Vale or Flintshire:

Newtown: St David’s House, New Street, Newtown, Powys, SY16 1RB. 

Bangor: 9, Ash Court, Parc Menai, Bangor, Gwynedd, LL57 4DF.

Ebbw Vale: Suite 1, Access 465, Rassau Industrial Estate, Ebbw Vale, NP23 5SD 

Flintshire: Building 4, Acorn Business Village, Flint, Flintshire, CH6 5YN.

The deadline for boxes to be sent is Friday, December 20.
