Medway Soroptimists succeeded in filling 106 “Boxes of Love” for those desperately in need

Love in a box 1Blytheswood Trust distributed approximately 17,500 boxes from Medway last year and in honour of Blytheswood Trust’s centenary this year, Medway Soroptimists aimed to fill 100 boxes.

The club met on two evenings to wrap and fill the boxes, and also to do what Soroptimists do best, to eat, drink and chat.

The boxes are filled with winter essentials like hats; gloves; scarves etc, toiletries; stationery; toys and sweets for all ages in order to provide a Christmas present for those who have little chance of getting one this year.    The boxes are all wrapped in Christmas paper and distributed by Blythswood Trust who say that the recipients are often overwhelmed that someone cared enough to prepare a gift for them.
