Christmas shoeboxes are arriving!

Shoeboxes are arriving for the 13th Annual Shoebox Drive for the Elderly organised by Silves-based charity Castelo dos Sonhos.

There is still time to participate. All that is needed is a shoebox, lots of goodies, festive wrapping and a little imagination.

Once you have located an empty shoebox, the next step is decide whether your gift will be tailored to a man, woman or couple. Then start filling your box with individually wrapped presents that will brighten someone’s day.

Filled shoeboxes may be delivered to Castelo dos Sonhos or the Holiday Inn Algarve on or before December 9, or to Iceland Overseas Supermarket in Guia on December 8 and 9 when there will be a team from Castelos dos Sonhos collecting.

Castelos dos Sonhos, a registered charity that helps more than 200 elderly people living in the Silves area, wants to bring a sparkle to their festive period.
