Christmas Shoebox Appeal for Ukraine’s children





An appeal for Christmas shoebox-size gifts to brighten the holiday season for children living in war-torn Ukraine has been launched by the Polish Women of Cambridge.

The group of Cambridge residents standing in solidarity with the people of Ukraine has asked for gifts to be dropped off at Together Cambridge, 5 Fitzroy Street, between noon and 5pm on weekdays.

“We need your heartwarming contributions,” said Aggy Rutkowskam, one of the organisers.

“What can you put in the Christmas shoeboxes? Items include toys, hygiene essentials, warm clothes accessories (hats, gloves, socks, etc), school supplies, sweet treats, and maybe a fun surprise gift.”

“We assure you that your generosity reaches directly, as shown in the recent November transport photos,” says Aggy, who adds: “We are Cambridge residents standing in solidarity with the people of Ukraine, providing help through humanitarian aid, fundraising, and career support since the conflict’s escalation.
