HCA The Wilmslow Hospital wraps-up Christmas for under privileged children across the world

04 December 2017

Filled with small toys, toothbrushes, toiletries and school supplies, 103 shoeboxes are currently making their way from Wilmslow to disadvantaged children all over the world.

The team at HCA The Wilmslow Hospital generously donated Christmas gifts for the international relief charity, Operation Christmas Child.

Jade Allen, Practice Manager at the hospital was responsible for co-ordinating the appeal for staff for the second year, although she herself has been supporting it personally for 11 years. Charitable causes are close to her heart, as Jade also spent three months in Ghana volunteering in a local village where she taught in a school and orphanage, helped deliver babies and assisted with building a marketplace so the local villagers were not selling goods on the side of the road.

Jade said: “Thank you to everyone who has supported Operation Christmas Child, this is a fantastic scheme which will hopefully bring a smile to children who may otherwise not have received a Christmas gift.

“It’s been six months of preparation; I started collecting the shoeboxes in the summer, and began wrapping the boxes in September. Staff at HCA The Wilmslow Hospital started to fill them in October ready for collection from the hospital this month. The effort is all worthwhile when you realise how big an impact a simple box can have on a child.”

Jade, and her colleagues, plan to continue to support Operation Christmas Child with the shoeboxes in the future and she is also hoping to assist with the sorting process next year once all the boxes reach the depot in Ashton-Under-Lyne.
