Brunel’s shoebox appeal
A CAR dealership is turning into Santa’s grotto in the next few weeks in aid of a campaign to send shoeboxes full of gifts to children in developing countries.
Brunel Ford in Winterstoke Road will be a drop-off point for the 2012 Operation Christmas Child shoebox appeal run in conjunction with the Samaritans Purse charity.
It sees shoeboxes of toys and gifts sent to children around the world. James Rant, regional director at Brunel Ford, said: “It’s an extremely worthwhile cause and we are looking forward to taking part again this year.”
