X1's Christmas Box Appeal - Join Us!

This year the X1 Team will all be donating Christmas Boxes for Operation Christmas Child & we are inviting you to join us!

For anyone who has not heard of this before; Operation Christmas Child is the Uk’s largest Children’s Christmas Appeal whereby people in the UK wrap gift filled shoe boxes, which are flown around the world to be distributed to underprivileged children.

These children are not fortunate enough to receive a gift, let alone a Christmas present.

If anyone would like to join in, it’s as simple as this:

1. Find a shoe box (making sure you follow the sizes on the website) and wrap with Christmas paper

2. You will then decide if you would like to pack a box for a girl or boy and choose an age category (2-4, 5-9 or 10-14 years)

3. Fill it with gifts (make sure to follow the guidelines as certain items are restricted) you can buy cheap items from places like B&M, Home Bargains etc.

4.Make a donation of £5 online which will generate a bar code to go inside your box.

5.Drop of at the nearest drop off station (or at an X1 Branch)

Feel free to drop your Christmas Shoe Box at either X1’s Liverpool or Manchester Branch & we will deliver it on your behalf along with ours!

The deadline is this Friday 16th November, so if you would like to take part, please drop them at either branch before or on this date!
