PORTIMAO - Christmas Shoe Box Appeal
In keeping with the season of goodwill, staff at the Portimao Store decided that this years chosen charity event would be the "Christmas Shoe Box Appeal".
Those that are not familiar with the concept, this is how it works: Anyone, staff, customers, members of the public were asked to fill a shoe box with christmas gifts that would be suitable for a boy or girl. Gifts can include, coloyring books, pencils, crayons, the list is endless and so is the imagination required to fill the box!
The box is then gift wrapped and a label is placed onto the box, advising the age suitability of the gift and whether it is for a boy of girl.
As you can see from the photos this was a great success!
Customers were also generous by buying and donating an extra tub of chocolates, mince pies or selection boxes, which were also given out during this charitable event.
WELL DONE TEAM PORTIMAO and a MASSIVE THANK YOU / OBRIGADO to everyone that has been so generous with the presents and also the food - you certainly made a child very happy this christmas.
