Droitwich Specsavers is asking the local community to spread the Christmas cheer by donating gifts in aid of international relief charity, Operation Christmas Child.

For the second year in a row, the team at Specsavers on St Andrews Square is supporting the cause which sends shoeboxes full of Christmas gifts around the world to children in need.

A word from the store director 

The collection will run until Friday 18 November, and the store is hoping to beat last year’s total. ‘Last year we were able to donate 150 boxes to the charity but this year we really want to try and contribute more to the cause,’ said store director Emma Singh. ‘Christmas is a time for sharing, and this simple idea will cause such a positive impact on these children in need.

‘Operation Christmas Child is a very special charity and we hope that Droitwch residents will support the cause and donate to children who are less fortunate than us. It’s a lovely idea to think that our generosity will be able to brighten the lives of those who are facing a tough Christmas this year.’
