A massive 'thank you' to all those who supported last year's Shoe Box Appeal. This was for Link to Hope, a Christian Charity established since 1991 and dedicated to rebuilding lives and communities in Eastern Europe by supporting Education and Social Care projects in Romania, Moldova, Ukraine and Bulgaria.
