AN APPEAL to deliver shoeboxes full of Christmas presents to children abroad is picking up steam.

Volunteers from the Gosportarians have been collecting shoeboxes full of gifts from schools across Gosport – and are now receiving boxes from community groups in the town.

Mary Tillman and her group of Trefoil Guilders created a total of 220 boxes, which will be going to eastern European countries.

Gosportarian Malcolm Dent said: ‘While most people were celebrating Halloween, some of us were having an early Christmas carol evening.

‘This means we collected more than 400 boxes on that day alone.’
