Brighouse Rotarians are calling on the community to make a difference to the lives of disadvantaged children, teenagers, adults and the elderly this Christmas in the Rotary Shoebox Appeal 2014.

The town’s Tesco, Bradford Road, store has been filled with hundreds of shoeboxes waiting to be filled with toys, toiletries, tinned and dried foods with a specific-aged person in mind as well as winter woolies including hats, gloves and scarves - for some of the region’s homeless men and women.

Last year’s appeal saw 2,200 shoeboxes filled with gifts of love by men, women and children across the region successfully delivered to make a difference to the lives shoebox receivers on Christmas day.

Brighouse Rotarian David Taylor says he is delighted to confirm the club’s involvement in this year’s Rotary and Halifax Courier Shoebox Appeal.

He said: “Once again, this year, we are asking for the support of our local primary and secondary schools as well as the good people of Brighouse.

“Last year was a great effort and a tremendous success with some 2,200 boxes filled throughout Calderdale, which included almost 600 from the Brighouse areas.

“Please get on board and show your commitment to a fantastic community cause.”
