This year’s Homeless Shoebox Appeal has been a great success!

The Facebook group, set up by Kelly Lllwelyn in 2015 focusses on helping those that are less fortunate with shoeboxes filled with all the essentials.

YMCA Somerset Coast were overwhelmed with the generosity from the public with a record number of shoeboxes being filled and donated this winter. Donations included hats, scarves, gloves, emergency food bags and much more!

Jayne Graham, P2i Accommodation & Support Enabler said “The generosity of the community has been truly heart-warming. It seems that every year more local businesses, churches and charities want to be a part of this amazing appeal.”
