Fred's helps out others abroad

Each year we sponsor the "shoe box appeal" with charity donation boxes containing a range of the products we sell here at Fred's.

This charity works tirelessly each year sending hundreds of gifts to less fortunate children in developing countries around the world.

Look at some of the happy faces amongst the children this year as they opened the shoe boxes donated by us and other UK companies.

Here's an extract from a nice email received this year.........

"Hi Fred Aldous Ltd,
We have just been sent the photos of some of the children opening their shoe boxes at Christmas. The charity also went to many villages, orphanages, hospitals and other places in need but these were the photos that i was sent for this year.As promised i have sent them for you to see.I have also added the wrapped boxes before they were sent.I am told that the children absolutely loved their boxes.Some of the children had to be convinced that they could keep them as they thought they had to give them back again afterwards.

Many thanks once again for your kind donation.

Kind regards - The shoebox Appeal"

We would be very interested in hearing about other charities that we may be able to help along side the shoe box appeal. Please let us know if you have any comments on this subject.
