Centre is thanked for generous donations

Have your say

A CHARITY is saying thanks to generous people who helped its shoebox appeal.

Samaritan’s Purse has extended its thanks to the Regus centre at Lakeside 1000, North Harbour for its support in collecting thousands of gift-filled boxes which have since been distributed to needy and vulnerable children around the world.

The boxes, put together by members of the public, businesses, schools and churches, contained everything from sweets and toys to toothbrushes.

Chief executive of Regus in the UK, Richard Morris, said: ‘We’re delighted to have been involved in the appeal again this year and the response has been fantastic.’
