BBP would like to thank all clients, staff, family, friends and others who have contributed to this year’s campaign, either by filling a shoe box, donating items for a shoe box or knitting items of clothing.

Boxes of Hope is a local humanitarian charity helping deprived communities in Romania by sending gift filled shoeboxes for children at Christmas.

Any surplus funds from the appeal go to help support educational projects in the area. Everyone involved with Boxes of Hope is a volunteer and those volunteers who visit Romania each year to help with the distribution fund the trip themselves.

Jan Copestake from BBP said: "BBP would like to say a big thank you to all those who have contributed to the campaign this year."
