The Smart & Secure Centre are amazed at the support for Ukraine Shoe Box Appeal

Shoebox Appeal - Massive thank you for all your donations!

The staff and management of The Smart & Secure Centre and EasyGates Ltd want to say many thanks for the amazing generosity of those that have donated items to the Ukraine Shoe Box Appeal, organised by the Dudley Community Church.

The campaign has snowballed, and we have over 4 tonnes of donations at The Smart & Secure Centre alone.

Tony Daniels-Gooding, Managing Director of The Smart & Secure Centre and parent company EasyGates Ltd, said “We have been absolutely overwhelmed by the generosity of the people of Halesowen and surrounding areas. Like so many people, after seeing the plight of the Ukrainian people, we just wanted to try and do something to help. We are truly thankful to those who have so generously donated.”

The first shipment has now been packed and will be sent shortly down to an arctic truck in London then onward to Poland.

We also want to thank many of the local Church groups, Community groups, schools and businesses that have organised collections and then brought them on to us.

There may be further requests for help – the website and social media will be updated when more is known.
