Last year I started the shoebox scheme for local families in need. It was very successful. This year Carlos fish and chip shop in Alnwick is the drop off point for toys, groceries and shoeboxes and hampers. People should cover the shoebox in Christmas paper and put a note on top secured with elastic band as to who it is for. eg. elderly man, elderly woman, child, boy or girl age group or single man or woman. Shoeboxes should contain special gifts for the recipient. We have many families locally that need help. Please let us know of anyone you think may need help. 2nd hand toys in good condition, food for the food bank, luxury items for the hampers and filled shoeboxes are all welcome. If you cant do a shoebox, one or two items are still most gratefully accepted. I am looking for volunteers to organise the same in different parts of Northumberland.

Helping Small Businesses Startup, Grow & Find Their Passion.
I can help small businesses find their strengths, grow their online presence and build on their most profitable sectors. My experience comes from working in Business Solutions for large-scale organisations for 15+ years and most importantly from running my own small businesses. I have an MBA from Edinburgh Business School but it means zilch compared with 15 years in the hot seat of my own eCommerce company.
If you’d like help to launch a new project, improve your business performance, get more sales or free up time by working more effectively, please get in touch.
