This community led appeal, helps the homeless, vulnerable families and animals across Merseyside.  We want them to know how much we care, and give them something to look forward to at this special time of the year.

Thank you for your help and support, it means more than you know!

Centre63 in kirkby has received the shoebox Full of Love for the past two years. I would like say that this was truly appreciated by all the young families we support in Knowsley.

The gifts were amazing and the young mums were overwhelmed by the gifts for Christmas.

Thank you

Me and my friends have donated the last couple of years but it takes some amazing organising to get it to be this good.

Well done all concerned. X

Love love love Shoebox full of love!

I’ve watched a small idea pop into Vorny’s head and transition into three years of hard work. with around 80,000 gifts annually being distributed to the homeless!

Money is always tight for us all at Christmas but in Merseyside we have the biggest, most selfless hearts and it’s amazing to see so many people, regardless of their situation, take time to make up a Shoebox.

Well done to Vorny, the shoebox team, and the volunteers, who work tirelessly and of course every one who drops off a Shoebox!

A massive thank you to Rent a Space storage solutions in Bootle, we really couldn’t do this without them, they provide storage facilities for free and also play a huge part in helping with the organisation of the shoeboxes.  Cal, Andy and the rest of the team are invaluable!

Thank you so much!
