Shoe Box Appeal
Christmas is usually thought of us a special time spent with family and friends, however, for homeless people or those at risk of becoming homeless it can be particularly isolating and lonely.
This Christmas the staff at LSI/IH Portsmouth decided to support The Society of St James’ Shoebox Appeal. LSI/IH Portsmouth staff filled shoeboxes with small gifts such as warm clothing items, toiletries and food and wrapped them up to be given to homeless people across the city to show them love and support.
We managed to donate a total of 31 shoeboxes of gifts which were all gratefully received by the staff of the All Saints Hostel run by The Society of St James.
Thank you to everyone who donated!
Update May 2017. LSI/IH Portsmouth had a bake off last month (April) and managed to raise another £168 (because we are all greedy lol). Hopefully, there will be another one very soon.
