SHOE BOX APPEAL SUCCESS
SHOE BOX APPEAL SUCCESS
This year one of our amazing Youth Workers Chloe and a team of incredible young people put out an appeal for donations of shoe boxes and gift items. The response was great and the generosity of young people, their families along with Dorchester Tesco, Hotter Shoes and Crew Clothing just shone through. The shoe boxes were jam packed with goodies destined for young people living in supported housing in Dorchester and for homeless people in Weymouth via the Homeless Bus. It was a team effort and we are really thankful to everyone who supported and helped.
