An office space provider has joined a Christmas appeal for disadvantaged children with a gift collection.

Office space provider Regus is collecting present-filled shoeboxes to send to those in need, with nearly 100 boxes donated at Douglas House in Hounslow, Sheen Road in Richmond and London Road in Twickenham.

Run in conjunction with the Samaritan’s Purse charity, the appeal involves filling shoeboxes with small toys, sweets and other gifts to send to children overseas in refugee camps, orphanages and homeless shelters.

John Spencer, CEO of Regus in the UK, said: "We were really pleased our local network of Regus centres could help by being collection points for such a worthwhile cause.

"We would like to thank all the local businesses, schools, groups and individuals who brought in shoeboxes and made it a great success."
